The new cameras, which are designed to deter crime and have aided in officers solving crimes, will be installed in the following areas:
- West Broad and South Terrace
- West Broad and Wayne
- West Broad and Wheatland
- Cleveland and 13th
- Cleveland and 23rd
- E Main and Lilley

Last year, the city installed 111 cameras in five neighborhoods – Hilltop, Mount Vernon, South Linden, Weinland Park and Livingston Avenues.
Columbus officials said that four of the five neighborhoods saw a decrease in crimes.
The locations for the cameras are selected by crime data.
