BROOKLYN - Security cameras are going to be installed throughout Midwood and Borough Park following the murder of 8-year-old Leiby Kletzky.

A $1 million state grant will bring 100 surveillance cameras to public lamp posts in the coming months.

State Assemblyman Dov Hikind and state Sen. Dean Skelos announced the "Leiby Kletzky Security Initiative,” two years after the boy's body parts were discovered inside a freezer that had been tossed in the trash.

The taxpayer-funded security system will augment an already insular Orthodox community, which has its own volunteer police force, ambulances and schools.
