Murgon police are setting up a database of private CCTV cameras throughout the local area.
Anyone with a home security camera who is willing to help police should pass on their details to Constable Alex Smith at Murgon Police Station.
“This information will then be used to compile a database of CCTV coverage, enabling officers to observe more of the town thus increasing safety and policing effectiveness,” a police spokesperson said.
“All that is needed from people is their name, contact number, address the CCTV is at and possibly a brief description of the footage available, eg. driveway or footpath.
“This information will only be accessible by police and will not be released publicly.
“Hopefully this will help to reduce property crime and aid investigations in our neighbourhood.”
A similar initiative was launched by Kingaroy Police last year.
