THE BRONX - The NYPD recently installed security cameras at Lydig and Holland avenues in an effort to deter criminals in the area known for drug deals.

The cameras are said to be monitored by police 24 hours a day. They were funded by City Councilman Jimmy Vaca, who paid for a total of four cameras in the borough. The cameras cost $140,000.

He says he chose to fund the cameras because he wanted “more eyes on our streets to protect law-abiding citizens.”

Many area residents say they welcome the new surveillance, while others told News 12 that the cameras should have been installed on Cruger and Barnes avenues.
