Cam Saw It

Own a Surveillance Camera? Register with the Police Department’s Cam Saw It! Program

Today, no matter where you go, what you do, at some point your activity is caught on camera. This video can at times provide law enforcement with crucial evidence, or help identify a potential suspect in a crime. Whether you own cameras for a business or residence, your voluntary participation with crime fighting can help make a difference when you provide video surveillance to law enforcement for investigative purposes. Yeadon’s Cam Saw It! (CSI) program is one more partnership with our community to help deter and solve crime. The CSI program is voluntary and your registration does not authorize Yeadon Police or any other law enforcement agency to enter your home or access your camera system without your expressed permission or knowledge.

To register your camera with the Yeadon Police Department’s Cam Saw It! Program, please download the complete application and terms and return when completed to Borough Hall or the Police Department.

Public Safety Announcement

Due to Wednesday’s impending storm, local public schools will be closed. Borough Hall will also be closed (for normal business as well as for all non-essential personnel).

Residents are advised if possible, to stay off the roads or to curtail travel in the interest of public safety. Snow Crews will be working throughout the storm to plow and salt streets, but an official emergency declaration will not be invoked – meaning cars may park on emergency streets, so long as they do not impede motor vehicle travel. Residents are advised that for emergencies, call 911.
For power outages, call PECO at 1-800-841-4141
For Emergency Management concerns, call 484-843-6872

Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we pull together to safely make it through this latest storm.

Respectfully,
Mayor Hepkins
