TREMONT - Residents at the Murphy Houses in Tremont are protesting the New York City Housing Authority over what they're calling a refusal to install more security cameras.

Residents say that the increase in crime, including the recent murder of an elderly resident, means that more needs to be done to increase security.

They say that state Sen. Ruth Thompson (D- Mt. Vernon) has set aside $1.2 million for the cameras. The housing authority claims that the money is not enough for the project.

Residents hope that if the cameras are installed, they will feel safer in their own homes.
