The Kirkwood Neighbors’ Organization, still reeling from the murder of a 21-year-old Army reservist, has decided to raise money to install security cameras around the neighborhood to help combat crime.

KNO Vice President Margie Yondorf sent a message to residents asking for donations to help pay for the cameras.

“It is the intention of the Kirkwood Neighbors’ Organization to use these funds specifically toward installing numerous cameras throughout Kirkwood, fund public safety events to raise additional money, and hopefully look into 911 call box installations,” Yondorf said in her letter.

She said that KNO has formed a Public Safety subcommittee.

“Everyone should realize that this process will not be speedy as we deal with Atlanta City Government, City of Atlanta Parks, PATH, the Atlanta Police Department, and Georgia Power along with the challenges of grant writing, technology, fundraising, and volunteers,” she said in her letter.

Yondorf said cameras in Kirkwood will be her No. 1 priority in 2014.
