Today, more and more citizens and businesses are installing private security cameras to help protect the inside and outside of their property. As a citizen or business owner, you may not be aware that your cameras may have unknowingly captured valuable footage that can help solve crimes. This footage, if accessible to the police department, has the ability to keep our community safer.
The S.C.R.A.M program encourages residents and businesses with security cameras to register their cameras with the police department. By registering your cameras, the police department will know which residences and business have functioning cameras.
PLEASE NOTE: registering your cameras provides the police department with the location of your cameras and does not allow the police department to view what your cameras are recording!
Benefits of Registering Your Cameras
Members of the community often look for ways to get involved in the fight against crime. By registering cameras, citizens and business are helping fight crime indirectly through technology. Often times, officers and detectives spend valuable time looking for leads, evidence, and potential cameras in the area of a crime, hoping they find something. Accessing the S.C.R.A.M system allows officers to immediately identify where private security cameras are located and positioned, eliminating any guess-work and wasted time of searching manually on foot. Registering cameras will help solve crime and crime sprees, can eliminate the innocent, assist with runaway and missing person case, along with many other positive effects. Cameras can still capture valuable footage even if the incident does not occur where the camera is housed. These selfless acts of resource sharing helps build and maintain strong neighborhoods and business districts while furthering more efficient pursuit of a safe, secure Flint Township.
