Home Surveillance Helping Abilene Police Fight Crime

ABILENE, Texas (KTAB) - Keeping watch over your home and family is becoming easier these days with the help of home surveillance systems.

The Abilene Police Department says it's helping solve crimes, too.

"We've solved a couple car burglaries recently as well as a theft of motorcycle from a carport," stated Detective Joel Harris.

The systems seem to becoming popular thanks to evolving technology.

"There's a lot of do-it-yourself stuff," added Joel Toby with Harbor Freight in Abilene, "and because of apps on your smart phones a lot of these systems you can actually monitor it from your phone anywhere you're at.".

These cameras can also catch more than just burglaries.

"Things like criminal trespass warnings and protective orders where somebody is refrained from coming back on your property," said Detective Harris. "It can be difficult to prove if they do come back without some sort of evidence like video or us actually catching them there."

Police say any extra step you can take to keep you and your family safe is well worth the extra price.
