In the name of Leiby Kletzky, the eight-year-old boy who was kidnapped and murdered last July, 150 high-tech security cameras will be installed in Borough Park and Midwood for the prevention of crime and, when needed, for solving crimes.
The area to be covered, writes Assemblymember Dov Hikind, will be bounded by "60th Street to McDonald Avenue, 9th Avenue to 20th Avenue in Borough Park, McDonald Avenue to Ocean Avenue, and Foster Avenue to Avenue U in Midwood."
He adds that "Surveillance cameras will be mounted at major intersections. Camera output will be accessed by private volunteer organizations and can be reviewed by authorized police officials."
