Washington, DC – DC police offer incentives to install surveillance cameras


D.C. police say they wish more people had security cameras after surveillance video helped catch the man who was responsible for last week’s quadruple shooting on North Capitol Street. “We have made a lot of progress in bringing people to justice in this city when it comes to violent crime,” said D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier. “And all of that progress is because we have people who work with police and provide information.” As a part of the city incentive program, up to $500 of camera costs will be rebated to residents and up to $750 to nonprofits, religious institutions and businesses. “This case from North Capitol Street is a perfect example where those cameras can be extremely useful to us,” Lanier said. “Our security camera program continues to have funds available and we want people to call us,” D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser said Thursday. “So, if we have [an]incident we can make a swift arrest.”
