A1 Security Crime of the Week

Sarnia Police Camera Registry

Crime Stoppers is reminding residents of the City of Sarnia about the Sarnia Police Camera Registry Program.

If you live in Sarnia and have external facing cameras on your residential or commercial property, Sarnia Lambton Crime Stoppers encourages you to go online and register your camera with the Sarnia Police Service.  You never know when a crime may happen in your neighbourhood.  Cameras can aid in making your neighbourhood a safer place.

The registration is voluntary and of course, the recorded information may be used in an investigation to help solve the crime and prosecute the individuals responsible.  With people doing a lot more online shopping these days, cameras have proven beneficial in the identification of thieves known as “porch pirates”.   A still photo taken from the video camera of the individual committing the crime has been posted on law enforcement websites and with the help of the public, the thief has been successfully identified.  There are many other crimes committed where the property camera could help.

Go online to the Sarnia Police Service website. Once there, under the heading “How Do I” you will see the Camera Registry form.  Fill out the form and submit it.

There are currently 205 camera registrants enlisted with the service but we know there are many more camera owners out there.  Let’s help keep Sarnia a safer community.

If you do see a post of a suspect, submit your tip to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or go online at www.p3tips.com.  You will remain anonymous and could receive a cash reward.
