City Council approves bills to improve security at Bronx and city schools

In an effort to improve safety in Bronx and city schools, the City Council unanimously approved three pieces of legislation Wednesday.

One measure calls for installing surveillance cameras in all schools citywide. Another aspect of the City Council's effort calls for giving parents access to crime statistics on public schools on the Department of Education's Web site.

Mayor Bloomberg must still approve the measures before they become law. As of now he says he must review each bill and see if the city can afford such measures.
