The Winter Police Department invites you to participate in our prevention effort by joining our CAPTURE Program. Winters Police Department is working with businesses and residents from the community to compile a list of privately owned security cameras to enhance crime prevention and enhance public safety. We are seeking the assistance of Winters business owners and residents who have security camera systems. If you have video security cameras, WPD is encouraging you to register the location and capabilities of your camera with us.
Video surveillance is one of the best methods for apprehending criminals and convicting suspects who are caught in the act of committing a crime. Installing video surveillance is a great example of community-police partnerships and is something we highly value as a police agency serving a small community.
This is a VOLUNTARY registry. Your personal and security information will be CONFIDENTIAL and not for pubic dissemination.
Using the geographic locations of the registered cameras, the Police Department will be able to directly contact citizens in an area in which a crime occurred. The Department may ask the citizen to check their video surveillance system for a specific date and time for video capturing a suspect, get-away car or a crime. If the citizen finds any video evidence, they can contact the Winters Police Department CAPTURE Program to make arrangements for video retrieval.
