NEW YORK (AP) — New York City's next big installation of security cameras will happen in a residential section of Brooklyn known for its low crime and large Orthodox Jewish population.

A hundred security cameras will be installed on lampposts throughout the Midwood and Borough Park neighborhoods in the coming months.

They're the result of a $1 million state grant secured after the 2011 abduction, dismemberment and murder of an 8-year-old Hasidic boy named Leiby Kletzky. The crime was committed by Levi Aron, himself a member of the Orthodox community.

Some have questioned the need for the cameras in an area where crime is low. But lawmakers who secured the grant say the cameras are necessary in a heavily Jewish area where the potential for anti-Semitic crime is always present.
