Livermore Police Department is asking local residents who have surveillance cameras installed to log into a collective surveillance system they have to help solve crimes.
The department is not asking residents for permanent access or a live stream of surveillance footage, police said.
The officers are instead encouraging businesses or homeowners to register any video surveillance systems they may have on their property to a secure online database.
According to the crime map on the Livermore Site, most crimes recorded are allegedly committed near the downtown area of Livermore. A place heavily dosed with homes and businesses.
Installing a surveillance system can help at least get a clue to who may have committed the crime.
