The Dakota James Foundation has been busy during the pandemic and is keeping its promise to help make Pittsburgh safer
Last month the foundation partnered with the Neighborhood Resilience Project and gifted 23 homeowners, located around the University of Pittsburgh, security kits to include flood lights for the front and back of the home and two cameras, one for interior and exterior. The foundation also gifted $2,500 to assist with the next neighborhood security project.
Months before placing cameras in this neighborhood, the Foundation partnered with the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust and mounted two cameras on the Byham Theatre building facing the Robert Clemente Bridge (6th Street). These cameras will allow the Trust’s security team and the City of Pittsburgh Police to access viewpoints on the Allegheny Riverfront Park.
