BROOKLYN - New York City Housing Authority officials announced that they have completed installation of closed-circuit television cameras in an effort to reduce crime at the development.

City Councilman Stephen Levin used $430,000 in funds for 30 new cameras and upgrades to 43 existing ones.

Police say surveillance video from the area helped them catch the suspect who allegedly burned religious objects in the neighborhood earlier this month.

Many residents at the Williams Plaza Houses say they feel safer now that they have more security cameras.
