Security Camera Installation

The safety and security of residents is of great importance to the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA). NYCHA recognizes that installing CCTV cameras deters crime and enhances the quality of life of its residents. Since the inception of the CCTV surveillance program in 1997, NYCHA has installed 8,090 security surveillance cameras of varying scale at 691 buildings in 125 developments citywide. NYCHA doesn’t have the funding to install these systems at all Developments but will install where elected officials have allocated discretionary funding for the aforementioned security measures.

As of July 2012, elected officials have allocated approximately $51 million (with another $10 million dollars allocated in the FY 2013 budget) to install CCTV and/or Layered Access Control at approximately 85 NYCHA developments citywide. NYCHA has been leading a comprehensive and inclusive process with residents, the New York City Police Department (NYPD) and the elected officials who have allocated capital funding to customize the implementation of CCTV and enhanced security measures within each of these NYCHA communities. The CCTV security systems are being strategically placed to monitor key areas such as building entrances, street corners, elevators, and equipment rooms. The NYPD can access footage in cases of reported criminal activity. NYCHA is on track to complete installation of CCTV, along with other enhanced security measures, such as layered access control, at these development sites by the end of 2013.
