Councilman Peter Koo (D-Flushing) secured funding to bring NYPD ARGUS surveillance cameras to strategic locations in his district. These cameras will help the NYPD investigate crimes, monitor key locations and enhance public safety in the community.
“One of my top priorities is to help ensure the highest level of public safety for residents,” Koo said in a statement. “Therefore, I allocated resources to purchase the latest technology and surveillance equipment to assist the NYPD in protecting our community.”
The cameras will be installed at the following locations: Roosevelt Avenue and College Point Boulevard, College Point Boulevard and 37th Avenue, 133-43 37 Ave., 41st Avenue and Parsons Boulevard, and Northern Boulevard and Union Street.
As in the past, the placement of new cameras is based upon an impartial review of relevant data such as crime and counter-terrorism risk assessments. Locations are chosen according to demonstrated need. Additionally, these locations were selected based on statistical analysis of street felonies and misdemeanors.
