FLINT TWP. — The Flint Township Police Department is reintroducing its free security camera registration program called S.C.R.A.M. (Security Camera Registration and Mapping). This service is offered for Flint Township residents and businesses as a way to get members of the community involved in the fight against crime.
By registering cameras, citizens and business are helping fight crime indirectly through technology. Officers and detectives spend valuable time looking for leads, evidence and potential cameras in the area of a crime, hoping to find something. Accessing the S.C.R.A.M system allows officers to immediately identify where private security cameras are located and positioned, eliminating guesswork and wasted time of searching manually on foot.
As stated by the Flint Township Police Department, registering cameras can also help to solve crime and crime sprees and assist with runaway and missing person cases, along with many other positive effects. Cameras can still capture valuable footage even if the incident does not occur where the camera is housed.
S.C.R.A.M is a form of resource sharing that helps to build and maintain strong neighborhoods and business districts while furthering more efficient pursuit of a safe, secure Flint Township.
