Merriam Police Wants Your Help Catching Criminals in the Act


If you have a security camera, Merriam Police needs your help. Officers are inviting you to join the Community Video Partnership Program to help catch criminals in the act.

The new program uses residents’ and businesses’ security cameras to fight crime. Participants will let police know where each public viewing camera is located and the direction its facing. Merriam Police will then create a confidential map of active security cameras across the City.

Officers may contact you if a crime happens in a specific area and see if your security camera captured the criminal activity. Merriam Police may request to make copies of video footage related to the crime and use it as evidence during court proceedings.

Merriam Police Captain Troy Duvanel said video cameras are one of the best methods for catching criminals.

“We are a small department and these cameras are like having an extra set of eyes looking for criminal activity,” Capt. Duvanel said. “This program is a win-win for both the citizens and Merriam Police.”

Capt. Duvanel said the program isn’t intended for active surveillance and police won’t have direct access to the video systems. Participants can unsubscribe from the program at any time.

You can register your cameras through an online application or by mail.
