DNA Info’s Alexandra Leon reports that about ten to twelve street-facing security cameras will be placed on residential buildings on Joralemon Street between Clinton and Furman streets this spring. This is in response to residents’ complaints about an increase in crime because of Joralemon’s becoming the principal entrance to Brooklyn Bridge Park. The DNA Info story quotes Brooklyn Heights Association Executive Director Peter Bray as saying the cameras will be placed on the buildings of residents who volunteer to have them there and agree to make footage available to the NYPD as needed. Mr. Bray also said this constitutes a expansion of Borough President Eric Adams’s “Safe Shoppers” program, originally targeted only on commercial areas.
