The Villages: Crime Fighting, Internships and Lane Closures

This week in the villages: Prepare for yet another week of challenging northbound evening commutes, as there will be lane closures approaching the bridge in Westchester. If you have a video surveillance system near your home or business, the Clarkstown Police Department wants you to join its crime fighting team. And Nyack News & Views is looking for interns.

Surveillance Camera Registration
According to local police, video surveillance is one of the best methods for apprehending criminals and convicting suspects who are caught in the act of committing a crime. The Clarkstown Police Department is urging local residents to join their crime fighting team: the Camera Registry Program. The program allows citizens and business owners to register the locations of their video surveillance systems with the police department. Using the geographic locations of the registered cameras, the department will be able to request program participants to check their video surveillance system for a specific date and time for video capturing a suspect, getaway car or a crime. If the participant finds any video evidence, they can contact the Clarkstown Police Department to make arrangements for video retrieval at the convenience of the camera owner.
