HOUMA, La. -- Houma's City Housing Agency has installed
two dozen security cameras between two public housing developments.
Police Chief Pat Boudreaux said there's a large amount of gunfire in the
area, but many of the shots appear to be at random, rather than aimed at anyone.
Police said that in a few months, the cameras will feed directly into
Houma Police headquarters, for 24-hour monitoring.
The residents who live in the area said they grow more worried about
their safety because of the escalated violence.
Joan Sevin, President of the resident council at Bayou Towers, said the
cameras are welcome and will make people feel safe.
