As you are aware, crime is a problem which impacts everyone. Fortunately, technological improvements have allowed the wide use of a variety of cameras in both businesses and residential areas. The Unified Police Department is creating a program to help you, the business or homeowner, do your part to deter and detect criminal acts.
A business or property owner installs a surveillance system on their property. At this point, the camera likely serves as a deterrent to criminal activity. However, unbeknownst to them, the surveillance system may have recorded criminal activity occurring nearby. The UPD SafeCam program identifies surveillance systems in the area which may have captured the event. An officer may contact the owner and request they search their camera system for anything relating to the crime. If anything was captured, the officer uses this information to help identify the perpetrator.
The UPD SafeCam program broadens the investigative leads available to solve the crime. UPD SafeCam program gives you and the Unified Police Department the chance to work collaboratively in solving the crime.
Participation in this program is voluntary and, if enrolled, you may opt out at any time.
