The Throgs Neck Business Improvement District is working hard to keep its constituents safe, thanks to new anti-crime cameras.
The BID says that the new cameras caught a Walgreens thief on the first day that they were installed. They say the cameras have also lent a hand when it comes to cracking down on illegal cannabis shops that have risen in the neighborhood.
"If you are caught selling illegally, you will have your lotto alcohol and tobacco licenses revoked. So there is real risk for any business owner. If you want to operate illegally, you could lose everything," said Bob Jean, of the Throgs Neck BID.
There are also plans to add planters to crosswalks to protect pedestrians, illuminate the streets and step up security patrols to support the NYPD.
