Councilmember Yolanda Adrean, Atlanta Police officer Drew Bahry, and Northside Youth Organization T-ballers John Weaver, Anslee Ricksgers and Mason Ricksgers stand with a new camera installed at sports fields at Chastain Park.

Two new police-monitored security cameras have been installed at the Northside Youth Organizations’ sports facilities at Chastain Park, NYO announced on April 18. The cameras join more than 5,000 city officials have said are already are set up around the city.

NYO, a multi-sports organization serving nearly 5,000 children a year in the Buckhead and Sandy Springs area, said the cameras will be positioned to overlook the entrance to the NYO fields from West Wieuca Road; the other camera will be placed to overlook the parking area and entrance to NYO off of Lake Forest Lane.

“We hope that the cameras act as a deterrent to car break-ins and, if not, we hope to catch the perpetrators,” said NYO president Mark Crosswell.   “We believe these cameras will enhance the safety and security of our program families, and that is always a priority for NYO.”
