Security Camera Registry will help police ID suspects and solve crimes

The Lethbridge Regional Police Service is encouraging business and home owners to register their security cameras so that footage may be used to assist investigators in the event of a crime in their neighbourhood.

 Once a camera is registered, the business or homeowner will receive an LRPS Security Camera Registry sticker to place in their window to help deter criminals.

“Security camera footage has always been an invaluable tool to help police solve crime and the registry program is a way for police to build on that success and encourage the community to take an active role to prevent and fight crime,” said Cst. Kara Hagen, Community Liaison Officer.

Once someone has registered their security camera, they will only be contacted by police if an incident has been reported in the vicinity of the camera and officers believe it may contain evidence relevant to an investigation.

For more information or to register a camera visit www.lethbridgepolice.ca and click on Security Camera Registry.

**Just a reminder, a media availability will be held at 9:30 a.m. this morning at Pit Stop Liquor, located at 511 6 Avenue South. Police will provide a brief overview of the program, demonstrate the registration process and conduct interviews**
