There's an update on an effort to install security cameras in a Bronx neighborhood where there's been a string of recent burglaries.

One burglary was caught on store surveillance.

Businesses in City Island have been waiting for 15 city-run security cameras to be installed on its commercial strip through a grant secured by State Senator Jeffrey Klein.

"Last week the City Island Chamber of Commerce, I found out, received a letter to start the contract moving and hopefully we can have 14 cameras and a base which will be able to be routed to the police precinct up and running in the next couple of months," Klein said.

Klein says the funds had to go through time-consuming steps before being released.
