FLINT TWP. — The Flint Township Police Department has rolled out a new security camera registration program called S.C.R.A.M. (Security Camera Registration and Mapping).
According to the department’s Facebook page, 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, the statement on Facebook said.
Accessing the S.C.R.A.M system allows officers to immediately identify where private security cameras are located and positioned, eliminating any guesswork and wasted time of searching manually on foot, said police.
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, said police.
These selfless acts of resource sharing help build and maintain strong neighborhoods and business districts while furthering more efficient pursuit of a safe, secure Flint Township.
To register your cameras or for further information go to The Flint Township Police Department website flinttownshippolice.org. click on Community Services and then on SCRAM.
This is only for Flint Township residents and businesses. — G.G.
