Flemington Borough Police introduce ‘Community CrimeCam’ program

FLEMINGTON BOROUGH, NJ (Hunterdon County) – The Flemington Borough Police Department has created the “Community CrimeCam” program which is a voluntary community safety initiative that allows both businesses and residents to partner with the police in the fight against crime throughout the borough.

“Video surveillance continues to be one of the best methods for apprehending criminals and convicting suspects who are caught in the act of committing a crime. Many business owners and residents currently operate surveillance systems at their businesses and/or homes. As crimes occur nearby, they are not always aware that their system may have captured information that could help solve the crime, thus keeping our community safer. In turn, the police are also not always aware who may have this potentially vital information,” police said.

When a crime occurs in a specific area, the Flemington Borough Police Department will call you and request a copy of the video footage. This footage will help establish leads, identify suspects and save valuable investigative time.

All registered camera locations will be stored in a secure database allowing the Flemington Borough Police Department to map out locations of cameras throughout the town. Residents and Businesses will only be contacted by the Flemington Borough Police Department in the event of a crime occurring in the area of their camera coverage.

The program is entirely voluntary and consent to view video footage from your camera could be withdrawn at any time. The Flemington Borough Police Department will not request to tap in or access private video surveillance cameras. The program is not intended for active surveillance or monitoring of surveillance cameras.

Anyone interested in participating in the program, fill out their online registration form at www.flemingtonpolice.org or print a form out and fax it to 908-782-6462 or email it or drop it off at the Flemington Borough Police headquarters.

For additional information about the Community CrimeCam Program, email Detective Corey M. Garrabrant at Ecgarrabrant@flemingtonpd.org or call 908-782-3434.
