Police departments work to build city surveillance through home security

Police departments have figured out a new way to increase city security – through privately-owned surveillance cameras. While the smart home security camera market is expected to rise swiftly in the next few years, police may have to implement restrictions to develop resident support.

Police departments around the country are trying to find new ways to increase neighborhood and city security. Recently, police departments across the country have started requesting for access to home surveillance, whether it’s through smart doorbells or registering home or business surveillance cameras.

Smart doorbells have heightened neighborhood security, creating private surveillance networks around the country. Recently, police departments have started offering free or discounted Amazon Ring doorbells to citizens. The catch is that in some giveaways, police require recipients to turn over footage when requested.(Kaitlyn DeHaven)
