ATHENS, Ala. – A north Alabama police department is building a database of private security cameras to help investigators know where to look for evidence after a crime is committed.

The Decatur Daily reports that property owners can volunteer for the Athens Police Department project, which is modeled after but not identical to one in Auburn.

Police are compiling a list of cameras at homes and other private locations. Police Chief Floyd Johnson says several residents and businesses have signed up since the department unveiled the program recently.
