Henderson, Nev. – When a crime occurs in a neighborhood, officers might not realize that important information was captured by a neighbor’s video surveillance system. A new program offered by Henderson Police aims to help capture that information to solve crime and make the community safer.
Henderson Police recently launched a new initiative, C.A.P.T.U.R.E – Community Awareness Program To Utilize Residential Electronic Eyes. By registering for the program, officers are able to identify those that may have captured important information in the event of a crime. Officers can then follow up with registered users to have them review their surveillance video for possible evidence. This information can help solve crime and keep the community safe.
“With the growing use of video surveillance systems, we have been able to solve multiple cases due to residents providing our officers with valuable evidence captured by their cameras,” said Henderson Police Acting Chief Todd Peters. “Video surveillance is a powerful crime-fighting tool, and this program will allow us to partner with residents and businesses to help solve crimes.”
Participation in the program is voluntary and does not allow Henderson Police to access privately owned surveillance systems or grant video feed access.
Registered users will also receive a reflective sticker for their home or business to show their participation in the program and commitment to helping keep the community safe.
