Video surveillance camera workshop for Fremont residents
Submitted By Martha Matthiesen
Due to high demand a second video surveillance camera workshop has been scheduled for April 8, 2014. We currently have approximately 100 open seats for the presentation and no RSVP is necessary.
Have you been thinking about installing a video surveillance camera at your home or in your neighborhood? Do you have questions about what type of camera you should purchase? Are you curious about what other residents and neighbors are doing to safeguard their homes and neighborhoods?
We are pleased to announce a collaborative effort with the Scott Creek Neighborhood to assist Fremont community members with the use and installation of privately owned and operated video surveillance cameras. Together, we have designed a workshop that will give residents an overview of how effective residential video cameras are at helping deter and solve crime. The workshop will be conducted jointly by Fremont Police staff and Fremont residents.
Fremont Detectives will give an overview of how beneficial video surveillance is to law enforcement. They will present a recent case study of a residential burglary incident where video was critical in breaking the case. They will also briefly discuss current burglary trends in Fremont and why Fremont's burglary rate has been on the decline for the last several months.
Fremont resident Ken Thomas will highlight how the Scott Creek neighborhood in south Fremont collaborated to raise funds and install community neighborhood cameras as a deterrent to prevent and solve crime. He and his neighbors will give specific details on their fundraising efforts, the types of cameras required to produce high quality images, where they installed the cameras and how they now work with law enforcement when a crime occurs. Sufficient time will be provided at the end of the presentation for questions and answers.
We are very thankful to Ken Thomas and his neighbors who have generously agreed to share information about their project and assist other residents and communities in Fremont.
No RSVP is necessary, however if you have questions, please contact Fremont Police Community Engagement Specialist Martha Matthiesen at Mmatthiesen@fremont.gov or 510-790-6979.
