KEIZER, OR (KPTV) - The Keizer Police Department launched a new program that seeks to grant officers access to registered public surveillance cameras.
The Surveillance Camera Registration and Mapping (S.C.R.A.M.) program invites residents and business owners to register their video surveillance cameras, according to police.
Vancouver announced a program like this back in January and Portland has one as well.
Police said the program is voluntary and is reserved for official use by the Keizer Police Department.
With the use of the program, officers may contact camera owners to request appropriate footage that may aid in the investigation of a nearby crime and footage collected may be used as evidence during any stage of a criminal proceeding.
If you want to register your home or business surveillance system you can visit the City of Keizer website.
