New surveillance cameras have gone up throughout Isla Vista. Each site has a pole that's up about 25 feet, with various cameras pointed in different directions. Many residents, mainly UC Santa Barbara students, were caught off guard by the cameras when they saw them today, after being gone for a week during Spring Break. Most said they favored the camera system if it made the area safer. Some were worried about the cameras zooming in through their windows. The cameras have gone up the same week the unpermitted "Deltopia" street party has been announced for this weekend through social media sites. Last year it drew a crowd estimated to be in excess of 15,000.
