Sacramento, Calif., – Nov. 9, 2023 – The Center for Digital Government (CDG) announced the winners of the 23rd annual Digital Cities Survey which recognizes cities utilizing technology to strengthen cybersecurity, enhance transparency, digital privacy rights, and digital equity, and those finding innovative ways to support solutions for social challenges facing cities today. The top 10-ranking cities in each of five population categories will be honored during the Digital Cities Awards event at the National League of Cities “City Summit” on November 16th in Atlanta, Georgia.  

“The Digital Cities survey winners continue to push the envelope of how government agencies deliver modern services during a period of rapid technological change,” said Todd Sander, VP, Center for Digital Government and Governing Institute. “Today we recognize and congratulate these trailblazers who are helping to build a government that works for everyone.” 

The City of Los Angeles was recognized as a first place winner in the "500,000 or more population" category. Of the award, CDG noted that L.A.'s Information Technology Agency (ITA) uses technology to support housing the homeless, to increase public safety, and to make Los Angeles more livable for every community. For Mayor Bass's "Inside Safe" homelessness program, the ITA built a Data Analysis Solution for L.A.'s Homelessness (DASH) platform for decision-makers; and utilizes the 311 Call Center and App, and the city’s TV station and social media as a communication platform for homeless initiatives with over 250,000 impressions monthly. ITA is also expanding infrastructure and devices, including Wi-Fi in homeless housing and tablets for service workers.
