NORTH LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The North Las Vegas Police Department has announced the creation of its new Community Cam Program.
The police department says video footage is important evidence when officers investigate potential crimes.
This voluntary program will let residents help officers in what they say is a proactive approach to fighting crime and solving cases.
The Community Cam Program allows citizens to register their home video surveillance systems into a secure database. This allows officers to quickly pinpoint which houses have cameras available to view that may be helpful during an investigation, greatly reducing the amount of time officers spend going door-to-door to find critical video evidence.
This program does not give the police department the ability to remotely access your cameras.
In a statement, the police department says, "the registration process is simple, completely voluntary, and now available to current North Las Vegas residents. No vital information is necessary to register. Community Cam has proven to be a useful tool for police departments around the country."

There is no fee for the program, your information will be kept confidential, and you can un-register/opt-out at any time.
