Hannibal Police Launch Voluntary Citizen Camera Surveillance
The Hannibal, Missouri police are giving you the chance to make your cameras available for surveillance. The program is completely voluntary and there's a simple process if you're interested.
The Hannibal Police Department's voluntary citizen surveillance camera program was announced in a press release which stated that the effort is being made to provide law enforcement authorities more data to assist in investigations.
The program appears to be available to both individuals and businesses through a rather simple website registration that looks like this.
It's understandable that law enforcement will benefit from more data and video. It will be interesting to see how this is viewed by privacy groups that are sensitive to government surveillance.
To emphasize, this is a voluntary program that isn't forcing anyone to do anything. Make sure to refer to the official Hannibal Police Department website for specifics and details.
