FANWOOD, NJ -- Fanwood Police Chief Richard Trigo is asking residents and business owners to help solve crime and keep the community safe by registering their surveillance cameras with the Citizen/Business Security Program to help deter crime and assist FPD in its overall crime prevention strategy.
"Many residents and business owners currently operate surveillance systems at their homes and/or businesses. As crimes occur nearby, they may not be aware that their system could have captured information that could help solve crimes and keep the community safer," Chief Trigo said.
"Police are also not always aware who may have this potentially vital information," Chief Trigo added. "We are asking residents and businesses throughout town to register their privately owned surveillance camera systems."
The Citizen/Business Security Program will help the police department quickly identify nearby cameras that may have captured criminal activity. After registering your camera, you would only be contacted by the Fanwood Police if there is a criminal incident in the vicinity. Police personnel, if necessary, may request to view your camera footage in order to assist in the investigation.
