New Orleans Realtor Group Funds Installation of Video Surveillance Cameras to Protect Neighborhoods

The cameras will be placed at mostly residents’ homes, including some churches and private businesses.

NEW ORLEANS — A realtor group here is funding the installation of 34 high-definition video surveillance cameras at mostly private residences in the city, according to The New Orleans Times-Picayune.

The New Orleans Metropolitan Association of Realtors gave $15,000 for the security cameras to help raise the property value of homes through increased security measures.

“There’s a direct link between the safety of the neighborhood and property values,” said Kelli Walker, senior vice president of the realtor group.

The cameras will mostly be placed at residents’ homes as well as churches and private businesses.

New Orleans has experienced the benefits of proper video surveillance cameras when police arrested Euric Cain for attempting to kill a Tulane University medical student in November after the entire scene was filmed by private security cameras.

New Orleans Police Department Superintendent Michael Harrison said law enforcement officers must be more “technologically savvy” to keep up with crime.
