Central Alberta District RCMP Detachments launch new security camera registry

RCMP in Sylvan Lake, Innisfail, Rimbey, Blackfalds and Rocky Mountain House have launched Community Assisted Policing Through the Use of Recorded Evidence (CAPTURE), a new security camera registry. The voluntary registry will record the location of security cameras owned by businesses and residents in these communities to assist in police investigations.

“Property crime has been identified as a policing priority in our rural communities,” said S/Sgt. Carl Dinsdale, Detachment Commander of Rocky Mountain House RCMP. “CAPTURE gives our members another tool to assist in their investigations, which may lead to an increase in solving these crimes and charging the individuals responsible.”

To register a camera and to learn more, visit www.crimecapture.ca. Only the location of the camera(s) and contact information are recorded on the secure site. Registering a camera does not give police access to cameras or the footage. If an incident happens, RCMP can view the list of camera locations, and contact the registered camera owners to make a request for the image(s) or footage.

“By providing the RCMP with the location of your security cameras, you could be helping to provide key information to ensure people responsible for a crime are held accountable,” says S/Sgt.Dinsdale. “When members of the community and police work together, we have better success and improve the overall safety of our communities.”
