SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ -- The Scotch Plains Police Department wants your help in reducing crime by voluntary taking part in our camera registry program.

This effort enables residents and business owners to register their video surveillance systems and other video devices with the Scotch Plains police, according to Chief Ted Conley, who announced the program during Tuesday's Township Council meeting.

When a crime occurs, police will have the ability to identify locations of nearby video cameras and seek the assistance of the owners to help our officers collect video evidence and follow up on investigations of criminal activity.
