CICERO, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — Cicero Police want to you to help them solve crimes more efficiently.
A new program, called the Neighborhood Surveillance Camera Program is set up for police to know who has home security cameras and where.
You can sign up with the police department if you live in Cicero and they put you in a confidential database.
Signing up for this program does not give the Cicero Police the ability to freely access your cameras, claim ownership or change how the camera system functions. This is simply a tool the officers can reference to see who might have captured footage related to a crime and help solve it faster.
“A lot of the businesses have been here a while. We know who has cameras. We know where they are. It’s the residents that add cameras and put cameras up. When you go through neighborhoods nowadays, there aren’t many people who don’t have a doorbell camera or some sort of security camera there is somebody out there nowadays,” said Cicero Police Department Sergeant James Myers.
