CROWN HEIGHTS - After a recent rise in crime, Crown Heights residents say security cameras are needed on Nostrand Avenue to keep everyone safe.

Sen. Eric Adams (D-Brooklyn) says he's trying to get funding for the cameras from the state Senate. Borough Park installed surveillance cameras after 8-year-old Leiby Kletzky was kidnapped and murdered last summer, and Crown Heights residents hope to follow suit.

Local businesses are working with Safe Watch 24, a private company, to possibly get a group discount on cameras.
