Seguin PD recruiting security camera owners in crime-fighting partnership

SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) —  Security cameras are becoming a vital tool in solving crimes in the greater San Antonio area, and one local police department is taking that dynamic to the next level.

The Seguin Police Department is actively recruiting residents and business owners in the community to register in a program that will help law enforcement know where security cameras are to gather key evidence and other information on certain crimes.

Surveillance video taken from both inside and outside is getting credit for identifying people and vehicles associated with crime scenes on a near regular basis. The trick is for police to be aware of where those extra eyes might be.

Those who register for the program may be contacted by police for help in all types of crimes, and the department stresses that the program is strictly voluntary and those who join can leave at any time.

For those who are joining, Seguin police will never have access to the footage obtained by a surveillance system unless permission is granted by the owner.

For those who would like to join, registration forms can be picked up the Seguin Police Department, located at 350 N. Guadalupe St.
