Council Member Krystal Oriadha Partners with Community Organization to Provide Security Camera Incentive Program

District 7 residents can now apply to receive a camera and funds for a one year subscription.

On March 21, 2023, Council Member Krystal Oriadha passed legislation to provide vouchers or rebates to offset the cost of security cameras for residents in the county. This was in response to the tragic death of Jayz Agnew, a 13-year-old boy shot while raking leaves in his front yard last year. There is no known surveillance video of the shooter which has stalled leads on bringing justice to the family for this senseless act of violence.  

Residents have been inquiring about this program since Council Member Oriadha passed the legislation and negotiated its funding into the FY2024 budget. The District 7 office has been actively following up with the County Executive's office regarding updates on the roll out of this program. In the interim, while we await a response, Council Member Oriadha is stepping up to fill the gap for District 7 residents.

This program is different from the countywide program and will only serve District 7 residents. Council Member Oriadha has partnered with the organization Community on the Frontlines which will provide free security cameras with an option to help with installation and funds towards a one year subscription fee.  

Applicants’ property must be within District 7 to apply. Applications are now being accepted. Supplies are limited and will be distributed on a first come, first serve basis.
