In the project’s first phase, 75 cameras are being installed and maintained by the NECA Boston contractor at various sites throughout the city. Approximately 35 additional cameras will be installed in a second phase. All camera box locations are publicly visible, with camera housing blue in color.

Cameras are aligned and focused to cover the areas of interest, and the integrated wireless antennas transmit video signals back to Lawrence police headquarters. Some of the security cameras offer a fixed 180-degree view of a site, while others have pan, tilt, and zoom features.
