I wanted to share some local news with the community. A serial rapist who had been breaking into homes and attacking women for at least 5 years was caught because a woman saw something suspicious on her security camera. She wasn’t a victim and it’s not clear if she was even aware of the investigation. But something didn’t look right and she turned the footage over to her local police department. They were able to connect the dots and (after more great police work), the suspect was finally arrested. A multi-jurisdiction task force and countless hours of work finally paid off because of a $100 security camera.
Like many of you, I want a camera system to catch or prevent someone from taking a set of wheels in my driveway or a UPS package from my front porch. But, when you read a story like this, you see the added benefit to your neighborhood.
