Adopt-A-Block is an innovative program that aims to increase the number of private security cameras in crime hot spots in New Orleans. Adopt-A-Block supports and enchances the overall SafeCamNOLA project, a citywide camera registry that helps the NOPD identify suspects and solve crimes.
Adopt-A-Block works with churches, businesses, homeowners and the NOPD to install private security cameras in crime hot spots. The equipment and installation in selected neighborhoods will be funded through private donations administered by the NOPJF. Installation areas will be approved on a case-by-case basis.
If you are a property owner and would like to apply as a candidate for security camera installations, please send an email to [email protected] with your name, phone number and the address where you would like to install cameras.
Only a limited number of applicants will be selected for installations. Decisions will be made in conjunction with NOPD District Commanders on the basis of crime trends and the firsthand knowledge and experience of district officers.
If you are a security camera vendor/installer and you are interested in partnering with NOPJF, please email Nathaniel Weaver at [email protected].
