The Somerset Police Department is asking for the public’s help in combating crime. The residents and business owners of Somerset now have the ability to be a part of the Somerset Camera Registry Program (SCRP). The SCRP allows residents and business owners to voluntarily input their video surveillance systems into the SCRP database. The information entered into this database will enable police officers to work with public to collect potential video evidence through either contacting the owner of the video themselves and/or traveling to the business or residence to view the footage. It is important to note we will NOT have direct access to your surveillance systems, but would simply request your help with video if needed.
We greatly appreciate any and all help that may be volunteered by our residents and business owners. In this age of rapidly evolving technology, we should all partner together to make use of the available tech to keep our own streets and homes safe and secure. Making use of the resources many of you already maintain for yourselves will help us in advancing our mission to make the Town of Somerset as secure as possible.
A thank you goes to SPD Intern Shannon Beloin for her work in beginning this program.
