Police ask businesses, residents to share surveillance video
DOVER, N.H. (AP) — Dover business owners and residents are being asked to help fight crime with private surveillance cameras.
WMUR-TV reports that Dover police are asking those who use surveillance cameras to monitor their property to sign up with the department. Police would then e-mail participants and ask them to check their footage if there was a nearby incident under investigation. For example, such cameras recently helped police arrest someone suspected of breaking into cars.
Officials emphasize the program is voluntary. No one will be compelled to share footage, and police won’t have access to the cameras.
