Security lights going up at Kennewick Housing Authority
KENNEWICK, Wash. - The Kennewick Housing Authority is hoping bright lights will add a layer of extra security giving any would-be criminals a second thought about committing any crimes.

Close to $100 thousand dollars in grant money will be used to pay for the lights.

High-tech security cameras were added last year.

We learned they've already made an impact lowering the crime rate by just being there.

People who live at the Kennewick Housing Authority complex tell KEPR they've noticed a change for the better.

Neighbor Ramon Andrade said, "I've actually been hit a couple of times in my apartment and it makes me feel a bit more secure you know. I have a family and everybody here is family so I feel like its about time.

The lights are already being added and should be all in by the end of Spring.
