Medford, Ore. – The Medford Police Department is launching a new program called S.C.R.A.M., or Surveillance Camera Registration And Mapping. The goal is create a map of where security cameras are set up, to help solve, and deter crime. Police say by documenting where cameras are, it makes it easier to locate the footage after an incident.
“Sometimes they’re hidden and sometimes people don’t want them obvious,” Lieutenant Mike Budreau said. “But a couple times that we could find cameras, they proved to be extremely helpful.”
When you sign up for the program, Medford Police will send you a sticker to place on your house or business, notifying people of the security cameras in place, and your participation in the program. It’s free to anyone, however the program is only offered to Medford residents.
