A recent survey of 400 New Orleans residents from 20 neighborhoods revealed that almost four out of five don't have a crime camera on their home or business, according to the group Safe on Our Streets (www.sosnola.com), which raises awareness of public safety. Nevertheless, 60 percent of people thought there were "many" or "a few" crime cameras in their area.

  The group, which was formed two years ago by the St. Charles Avenue Association and the group St. Claude Main Street, plans to release a "toolkit" this summer to help residents navigate quality-of-life issues.
