Private security cameras keeping watch over North Jersey town, report says

WAYNE -- Township police are using a "camera share" program to quickly access home surveillance videos, NBC New York reported.

Police have asked residents and business owners to voluntarily register their private cameras with the department, allowing investigators to quickly access the video if crimes occur nearby.

The Wayne Police Department doesn't have live access to the cameras. Rather, residents consent to email clips to police.

The state passed a law in 2015 allowing towns to create registries of private surveillance cameras.

A number of other towns have created registries, including Linden, Trenton and Lindenwold. In these towns, police map the locations of the registered cameras and know to access them if crimes occur.

Trenton police officials said mapping private cameras would also help inform decisions on where to place city-owned cameras.

As part of the Linden program, the city plans to provide surveillance cameras to senior citizens in addition to registering existing cameras.
