WAUKEE, Iowa-- The Waukee Police Department wants homeowners with home security cameras to register them with the city.
Sgt. Mackenzie Sposeto tells WHO Radio News the department will keep a database of residents who've voluntarily registered their homes.
"Let's say an officer gets called to a break-in in a certain neighborhood--they can look to see who has registered cameras in that area. All the contact information is there."
Sposeto says the department's trying to be proactive with a growing population that's bringing an increase in criminal activity.
She says it's an expansion of a program that's asked business owners to register their cameras.
