(ATLANTA, Ga.) Atlanta’s citywide initiative “Light Up the Night” is moving along with the installation of cameras in high-need areas to decrease traffic incidents and crime.

“We had this legislation a year ago as a council-member, and now we’re well on our way to 10,000 new streetlights,” Mayor Andre Dickens said in a news conference Thursday.

The initiative is a partnership between Georgia Power and the city of Atlanta and three thousand cameras have already been installed in areas like Thomasville Heights, Audubon Forest West, Boulder Park, Bakers Ferry, Fairburn Road, Vine City and Todd Street.
