BROOKLYN - The New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) has outlined plans to boost security at a Brooklyn housing development following the release of a detailed report highlighting crime in public housing.

The report compiled by NYPD's Safety and Security Task Force laid out a series of goals meant to improve security at Wycoff Gardens housing on 3rd Avenue, including updating infrastructure like doors and intercom systems, as well as deterring crime by working closely with the NYPD.

A survey of more than 1,000 public housing residents conducted by the NYCHA and the Safety and Security Task Force found that 75 percent of them were fearful of crime.

Sixty percent of responders said a serious crime occurred in the past year, while 6 percent said they were a victim of crime.
