GULF SHORES, Ala. (WKRG) — Another local law enforcement agency is turning to surveillance cameras in the community to help solve crimes.

The Gulf Shores Police Department is asking residents and businesses to partner with them.

People in the community can register their privately-owned surveillance cameras to help streamline officers’ evidence-gathering process.

This will give police access to a network of cameras to help catch criminals by adding homeowners’ and business’ information to a database. So instead of combing an area for cameras, they’ll know exactly who has them, an who would be willing to share footage. If you sign up, Gulf Shores Police would not have direct remote access to your footage.

The Mobile Police Department has a similar surveillance camera program called Project Shield, and Pensacola Police announced a similar initiative earlier this month.
