DAVENPORT, Iowa – The Davenport Police Department is asking residents to consider registering their home security cameras through its new program.
The Camera Registration Program can be especially helpful during the holiday season when many are expecting deliveries to their homes.
Police say investigations frequently involve officers canvassing areas surrounding a crime scene for security cameras. Knowing where cameras are located can help officers speed up investigations. It allows them to prioritize where to begin looking for evidence.
According to the police department, the voluntary camera registration program is only accessible to law enforcement personnel. The program will not have access to any cameras or systems. It will only document their locations and the contact information provided by the owner.
