The Shepherds Watch is a groundbreaking program that has been implemented to help deter crime and assist our local police agencies solve crimes more quickly by partnering with our local community.
When a crime is committed …. time is of the essence.
The longer a crime goes unsolved, the higher the chance it stays unsolved.
By identifying the location of current video surveillance cameras throughout Pulaski County, crimes can be solved at a higher rate of speed by local police agencies.
Security cameras are known to be one of the best tools that police have available to them when they’re seeking to investigate cases. Law enforcement has used cameras to help solve crimes ranging from drunk driving to kidnapping and murder.
Enrolling your camera not only helps deter crime, but assists our local police departments in their overall crime prevention strategy in our neighborhoods.
Enrolling is simple and only takes about 10 minutes to complete the steps. You will provide basic information and tell us where your cameras are located. There is no cost associated with enrolling and is completely voluntary.
Please note … the police depatrment will NOT have remote access to your cameras and your participation may be deleted at any time by request.
Once you have completed the enrollment form and verification process, a member of the Department will follow up with you to confirm your enrollment. At this point, you will also receive a SPD Shepherds Watch window decal which you may proudly display in your home or business.
