Crime Camera Grant Program

The Algiers Point Association is committed to building a safe community for all of our neighbors. We will grant $150 to anyone living in our neighborhood who wishes to install a safety camera pointed towards the public right-of-way.

There are two options for cameras that will be considered for this program:

1) $150 one time grant for a Project NOLA camera or camera linked with the City of New Orleans Real Time Crime Center’s SafeCam Platinum Program.

Information on the City of New Orleans’ Real Time Crime Center’s SafeCam Platinum Program:

  • There is only one camera you can use to be considered for this program, available here.
  • To learn more about the SafeCam Platinum Program and the specific requirements it involves, learn more here.

Information on Project NOLA Partnership:

  • Learn more about the requirements of the Project NOLA program here.

2) $150 one time grant for an independent video system

The new program allows for a home within Algiers Point to purchase their own video security system. We have a system which is preapproved and may be found on Amazon:

GW 8 Channel H.265 NVR 4MP (2592 x 1520) Power Over Ethernet IP Camera System, 4pcs 4MP 1520p 2.8-12mm Varifocal Zoom POE Weatherproof Bullet Security Cameras, 130ft Night Vision

  • Any Home video system other than the above must get approval to be eligible for the grant.
  • As a condition of the grant at least one camera from the video security system must be directed toward public space.
  • An officer of the APA must confirm final installation and that at least one camera is pointed at a public area and that the cameras are being recorded.
  • Systems from security companies like ADT are typically low quality and do not qualify for this grant.

Additional Information:

  • $150 is provided by the APA once the camera is purchased, installed, application is completed and the camera monitoring by Project NOLA is confirmed.
  • The SafeCam or Project NOLA camera can be a part of a larger camera or security system and will still qualify for the grant.
  • A second APA cameragrant is sometimes possible if you own a corner property. Typically the second camera will receive an additional $50-100. This second grant must be APA board approved so please call to discuss a second camera before installation.
  • We’ve now had cameras that have been operating for 3 years. If there is some reason that your camera is no longer being recorded the APA board has authorized four $50 grants for a service call which returns a camera to service.
  • We recommend E South (504) 234-1017 or Advanced Custom Solutions (504) 722-5668 for camera installation and servicing. Installation is typically $150, service calls start at $50 and go up depending on complexity. Ensure you discuss costs with the company before they arrive.

Places of Worship

Mt. Olivet Episcopal Church | 530 PELIAN AVE. Mt. Olivet is in the oldest church building in continuous use on the westbank of New Orleans. Built in 1854, the building has been in continuous use for more than one hundred fifty years. The first services were held in the parlor of the Hughes Hotel in 1846 – the present day site of Belleville School. The current building was built in 1854, entirely of cypress. It has withstood two fires and several hurricanes. Originally it faced Olivier where the racetrack across the street annoyed the church ladies so severely they referred to them as a “bunch of wild hooligans.” The racetrack closed in 1861 and by the 1880s, Mt. Olivet had outgrown this building and a fine new brick building was built. This structure was moved to face Pelican and used as a parish hall. Alas, by 1961 the massive brick structure was crumbling and had to be torn down. Trinity Lutheran Church: Built in 1911 by German families, this church might have lost its steeple in Hurricane Katrina but never its faithful. And the faithful (and everyone else) flocks to the Octoberfest that the church hosts every Fall.

Holy Name of Mary Catholic Church | 400 VERRET ST. Built in 1929, this Gothic style church has over 75 stained glass windows, many imported fromGermany. The Catholic parish in Algiers was established in 1848 in a small wooden structure on Morgan St. In response to a growing population, the congregation then built at this location which had previously been a mid-19th century site of voodoo dancing as well as a post-Civil War prison camp.

Algiers United Methodist Church | 637 OPELOUSAS AVE In 1840, Mr. Smiley, a Presbyterian, began a Sunday school in the old Duverje plantation home. Algiers United Methodist Church was organized in 1844 from this Sabbath school and may be the oldest Christian congregation on the west bank of the Mississippi River within the New Orleans area. First pastored by a former sea captain, the church was called the Good Hope Chapel until 1847 when it was chartered by the Methodist Episcopal Church, South. The first church building was located near the river bank on a site that was donated by J.B. and Alix Duverje Olivier. In 1857 the bargeboard structure was abandoned and a new building was erected at the corner of Delaronde and Lavergne Streets. The current structure was built in 1922, after that church was destroyed by the hurricane of 1915.

Algiers Lutheran Church | 620 ELIZA ST. Built in 1911 by German families, this church might have lost its steeple in Hurricane Katrina but never its faithful. And the faithful (and everyone else) flocks to the Octoberfest that the church hosts every Fall.
