Virtual Companion- Anti-Crime Safety Cams
What problem would you like to solve?
LAANY's citywide workshops has consistently identified the fear of street crime and attacks as the primary concern in the Asian community from the young to the elderly.
Why is it important to solve? Why is it relevant for the community?
Fear of street crime has caused severe anxiousness leading to mental and emotional stress and hesitancy to go out publicly to shop, interact socially, recreate, and seek necessary services.
What idea do you have to address the problem?
Fund a program to purchase "Ring" type cams powered by solar panels and seek residences and businesses to voluntarily mount and utilize their wifi network to monitor pedestrian and street activity along a continuous path. Police often use resident and business monitoring cams to help catch perpetrators but it is often a patchwork of cams. This effort would uniform a street watch where city cams do not exist. It would be especially useful as a virtual companion for those who must walk home at night along quiet streets.
