As the next step in a $2.56 million investment in the Cavile Place/Stop Six community, surveillance cameras are being installed to help improve public safety.

About two dozen mobile surveillance cameras are being installed to help the Fort Worth Police Department keep a 24-7 eye on known hot spots of criminal activity.

About the Stop Six initiative

The targeted area is bordered by Rosedale Street on the north, Ramey Avenue on the south, Stalcup Road on the east and just west of Edgewood Terrace on the west.

The City Council set aside $2.56 million in funding to implement capital projects aimed specifically at improving neighborhoods. This funding may be designated for targeted neighborhoods on an annual basis.

The revitalization has a dual purpose: increase public safety and improve the looks of the neighborhood.

Depending on results, similar revitalization programs will be rolled out in a different neighborhood in the coming years.
