(Cleveland) – Steps are being taken to increase security in part of Slavic Village.

Councilman Zack Reed thinks the Warner Road area can be the next Ohio City or Tremont, and to do that he says crime needs to be tackled head-on.

With that in mind, Reed says added layer of security is coming for residents and merchant’s along Warner Road with the installation of 10 wireless security cameras.

At a cost of $21,048, the cameras will be positioned along the largely commercial strip to foster a safer district for merchants, customers and residents alike.

Modeled after Councilman Reed’s existing camera program, the Warner cameras will allow for superior detail resolution using digital technology. Recorded footage will be observable in real time and archived in the event a review is needed.

Cameras will be mounted on area telephone poles along Warner Road between Turney and Grand Division Avenue.

“I am committed to taking every step possible to improve the safety of my community,” said Cleveland City Councilman Zack Reed. “These cameras will provide an added layer of security to help deter threats, but to also help solve any incidents of criminal activity. We can no longer allow the acts of a few to weigh on this neighborhood as a whole. ”
