crime camera grant program

The Algiers Point Association is committed to building a safe community for all of our neighbors. We will grant $150 to anyone living in our neighborhood who wishes to install a safety camera pointed towards the public right-of-way.

There are two options for cameras that will be considered for this program:

1) $150 one time grant for a Project NOLA camera or camera linked with the City of New Orleans Real Time Crime Center’s SafeCam Platinum Program.

Information on the City of New Orleans’ Real Time Crime Center’s SafeCam Platinum Program:

  • There is only one camera you can use to be considered for this program, available here.

  • To learn more about the SafeCam Platinum Program and the specific requirements it involves, learn more here.

2) $150 one time grant for an independent video system

The new program allows for a home within Algiers Point to purchase their own video security system. We have a system which is preapproved and may be found on Amazon:

GW 8 Channel H.265 NVR 4MP (2592 x 1520) Power Over Ethernet IP Camera System, 4pcs 4MP 1520p 2.8-12mm Varifocal Zoom POE Weatherproof Bullet Security Cameras, 130ft Night Vision

  • Any Home video system other than the above must get approval to be eligible for the grant.

  • As a condition of the grant at least one camera from the video security system must be directed toward public space.

  • An officer of the APA must confirm final installation and that at least one camera is pointed at a public area and that the cameras are being recorded.

  • Systems from security companies like ADT are typically low quality and do not qualify for this grant.

Additional Information:

  • $150 is provided by the APA once the camera is purchased, installed, application is completed and the camera monitoring by Project NOLA is confirmed.

  • The SafeCam or Project NOLA camera can be a part of a larger camera or security system and will still qualify for the grant.

  • A second APA cameragrant is sometimes possible if you own a corner property. Typically the second camera will receive an additional $50-100. This second grant must be APA board approved so please call to discuss a second camera before installation.

  • We’ve now had cameras that have been operating for 3 years. If there is some reason that your camera is no longer being recorded the APA board has authorized four $50 grants for a service call which returns a camera to service.

  • We recommend E South (504) 234-1017 or Advanced Custom Solutions (504) 722-5668 for camera installation and servicing. Installation is typically $150, service calls start at $50 and go up depending on complexity.  Ensure you discuss costs with the company before they arrive.
