LAWTON, OK (KSWO) –The Lawton Police Department is asking for volunteers to help them with a new surveillance mapping initiative.

The Community Crime Prevention Surveillance Mapping System is a purely volunteer program and the Lawton Police Department is hoping Lawton businesses and residents will get on board. The program simply requires you to let LPD know if you have surveillance cameras, which direction they face and how long you keep the video.

LPD says the program is designed to let them, and only them, know where to go after a crime takes place, like an armed robbery or child abduction, to hopefully get surveillance video. They say knowing where cameras are throughout the city would greatly help detectives in their investigations.

“Perhaps if the criminals know that the entire is town is watching them, they may think twice before committing the act,” Lawton Police Detective and PIO Nancy Lombardo said. “We would like to thank our citizens for any assistance they can provide in starting up this new crime prevention initiative in our area.”

The program is completely voluntary. If you want to let LPD know about your surveillance cameras, there’s a one-page form available at the front desk of the Lawton Police Department. You can also download the form here and drop it off at LPD’s front desk or to any police officer or Sentinel on duty.
