Bryan Lagarde  NEW ORLEANS, LA
My name is Bryan Lagarde and I’m a criminologist and former police officer.  In 2010, I used my own money to create what has become the largest (and most cost efficient) networked HD city-wide crime camera system in America.  Consisting of over 1500 HD street-facing cameras placed on private homes and businesses about New Orleans, the ProjectNOLA non-profit crime camera system routinely provides real-time supplemental information to officers responding to emergency situations and has helped close countless major cases via arrest and warrant.  With a focus on privacy, only three system administrators have access to our crime camera system and we only provide crime footage to law enforcement.


As a citizen-based crime abatement initiative, I built ProjectNOLA without the benefit of Federal dollars or city tax money, knowing that it was the right thing to do.  Surprising to many, what I created is far superior and larger compared to networked crime camera systems that other cities have built for tens of millions of dollars and maintain for millions/year more.

Frankly speaking, I’m not wealthy and I simply cannot continue being the sole funding mechanism for ProjectNOLA.  As a criminologist, I knew what needed to be done and scratched together the means to create and manage it.  Now, five years later and with our system very well proven, I stand asking for your financial assistance.  Please… for the sake of our city and in light of the NOPD’s manpower woes… help fund the ProjectNOLA crime camera system.

Our goal is $150k, which will help pay the operational cost (fiber internet, electricity, server maintenance, insurance, and labor cost) of our non-profit crime camera system for another year.  Surplus funds may be used to hire a grant writer and make improvements to our Incident Monitoring Ceter so that we may simultaneously engage more emergency situations.  I humbly welcome corporate sponsors who may wish to have their name become part of our continued success.

Should anyone have any questions, please feel free to post them via comments or call me at (504) 298-9117.  If interested in participating with the ProjectNOLA non-profit crime camera system, please call us should you have an IP camera already viewing a public street or wish to get an official ProjectNOLA HD crime camera kit.  If outside New Orleans, call and see how we may help you too.
