This is a story about how police are asking residents to register their outdoor security cameras to help fight crime. It is kind of a 22nd century neighborhood watch.
Ten years ago outdoor surveillance cameras were a rarity in central New York and other states. But they are becoming much more common as prices drop in technology improves. Now police see that is a modern way to help fight crime. In some cities and towns across the nation — from Hinsdale, Ill., to Los Gatos, Calif., to St. Bernard Parish, La. — police have started to ask residents to voluntarily register their outdoor video cameras so that police know where to retrieve footage if they need it.
Police have even put their own cameras in some neighborhoods but financial resources are limited making police cameras not all that common. In one area, a local homeowner installs cameras for his neighbors for free figuring that everybody is better off.
“The technology is getting cheaper and easier to use. Although high-end video installations can cost thousands, do-it-yourselfers can easily buy multi-camera systems for as little as a few hundred dollars.”
