Police in Fairhaven are starting a security camera registry for town residents and businesses to help fight crime.

Sgt. Kevin Kobza says the department is inviting those with video surveillance systems to register with the police department.

"If a crime occurs in a ceetain part of town, we can go to those folks who are a part of the Registry that may have security cameras in that area, and ask if we can review the video."

Kobza says only a small number of officers will have access to the Registry, and police will ask the property owners first before viewing their video.

Kobza says giving police access to your video could help solve a crime in your neighborhood. If you would like to register, log on to fairhavenpolice.org.
