SAFE CAM: FBPD asks for the help of extra "eyes" in the community

Surveillance camera

FARMERS BRANCH ~ As one of its newest crime prevention and investigation tools, the Farmers Branch Police Department is asking local residents and businesses to register their surveillance cameras for the SafeCam initiative.

"Citizen-provided security camera footage is becoming an increasingly valuable asset to our department, helping to establish leads and identify suspects," said Farmers Branch Police Chief Sid Fuller. "Surveillance video recorded by cameras owned by residents and business owners have resulted in the arrest of numerous criminals."

Chief Fuller explained that the SafeCam Initiative asks residents and business owners with exterior security cameras to register them with the department so investigators know who they can contact in the event of an incident in their neighborhood or business area.

For more information, contact the Farmers Branch Police Department Crime Prevention office at 972.919.9135 or fill out a SafeCam registration form online.
