ASBURY PARK - Street cameras are set to be installed in Neptune and Asbury Park in an effort to combat crime.

The Monmouth County Sheriff's Office is joining forces with the two communities to place the wireless cameras in various locations. Existing cameras will also be fixed.

The goal is to have all of the cameras connected to the 911 center so police can have a bird's eye view when crime is happening.

The camera systems should be up and running in about one year, according to the Monmouth County Sheriff's Office.
