SBPD asks homeowners, businesses to register security cameras
SOUTH BEND, Ind. - The South Bend Police Department is asking homeowners and businesses to register their security cameras to help solve more crimes.
This program first launched back in 2015, but police say not many people signed up at the time. They say they're hoping to get a better response this time.
When a crime occurs, officers can consult the list of registered security cameras and see if there are any nearby that might show what happened.
The program is free, safe and voluntary. Even once a camera is registered, owners can still deny a request from police to view the footage.
