CAPTURE_LogoC.A.P.T.U.R.E. Community Video Surveillance Program
The Henderson Police C.A.P.T.U.R.E. program acronym stands for Community Awareness Program Through Utilizing Residential (Electronic) Eyes. Video surveillance is one of the best methods for apprehending criminals and convicting suspects who are caught in the act of committing a crime. Video surveillance is a great crime deterrent and offers investigative leads in the event a crime does occur. The Henderson Police Department strongly encourages installing residential and business surveillance systems.

How does C.A.P.T.U.R.E. work?

The Henderson Police Department is committed to our partnership with residents. Many residents currently operate surveillance systems at their homes. As crimes occur nearby, they are not always aware that their system may have C.A.P.T.U.R.E.d information that could help solve the crime, thus keeping our community safer. In turn, the police are also not always aware who may have this potentially vital information. This program connects Henderson Police officers with citizens who have surveillance video in the event of a crime. As always, this program is 100% voluntary and citizens can opt-out at any time.

What are the Benefits of Registering Your Camera(s)?
By registering with the Henderson Police Department, we can quickly identify nearby cameras that may have C.A.P.T.U.R.E.d criminal activity. After registering your camera, you will receive a C.A.P.T.U.R.E. reflective sticker for your home to show your participation in the program. If a crime occurs in your neighborhood, you may be contacted by the Henderson Police Department. Police personnel would contact you to ask if you would examine the time frame in question for potential leads in the investigation. If your equipment was able to C.A.P.T.U.R.E. pertinent information, we would arrange a convenient way to retrieve the information from you.

Since you own the camera, your participation always remains 100% voluntary. Your information will be kept safe and secure; never made public. Only local law enforcement can view the surveillance video footage.
