On April 22, Assemblyman Michael Benedetto and Senator Jamaal Bailey announced that there are new safety cameras monitored by the police at an undisclosed location in Co-op City.

Co-op City resident Junius Williams told the Bronx Times he approached Benedetto about having more cameras in the community in 2015. Williams, 66, moved to Co-op City in 2010 and wanted to make the neighborhood safer.

“I’ve always been security conscious,” he explained. “These NYPD cameras are a culmination of my vision. Cameras hold everyone accountable.”
