Community Video Partnership
The Wylie Police Department is asking for help from residents, business owners, and property management companies to create a resource for officers and detectives in the fight against crime. The Wylie Police Community Video Partnership Program asks owners of video surveillance cameras to volunteer their information and complete an online form that has basic questions about their video system’s capabilities.
If a crime happens, a police officer or detective can check the database for businesses and homes in the vicinity of the crime with a surveillance system. If one is listed in the database, Wylie Police may contact that location and ask them to review their footage to see if anything was captured that may help with the case.
The Wylie Police Department has seen an increase in surveillance systems used by businesses, property management companies and residents and has successfully made arrests in cases where the surveillance video captured the suspect in the act. This resource will allow police to more quickly identify video camera locations where suspect information may have been captured.
If you have questions, you can contact the Crime Prevention Unit at 972-429-8019.
***Wylie Police will have no direct access to any of the systems and will only contact the resident if there is belief that their video system may contain something of investigative significance.***
