The Soulard neighborhood will have 16 new security cameras by autumn.

Police and Soulard community leaders will demonstrate one of the cameras and provide more details about the program at 2 p.m. Thursday at police headquarters at 1915 Olive Street.

The Mardi Gras Foundation and other community or business groups raised nearly $200,000 to buy and install the cameras, police say. Officials expect all sixteen cameras will be online by autumn. Some of them will be able to recognize license plates.
