ROCKFORD, Ill. (WTVO) — Rockford Police said that more than 70 people have reached out to join the Community Camera Network.
The police department asked, last week, residents and owners to add their security cameras to the network.
The information residents would provide from their cameras would only be seen by law enforcement.
Officers say this will help make the communities safer.
“If there’s an incident that happens in their neighborhood we can look at our map and see where the people are that have cameras in that area,” said Robert Reffett, Lieutenant of Special Operations at the Rockford Police Department. “And then we can just contact them, ask them to check their systems to see if they caught the incident on camera.”
