Halton Police Launches “Caught on Tape”

The Halton Regional Police Service is enhancing its public engagement to help identify persons of interest and/or suspects wanted in connection with crimes that have been captured via security or Closed Circuit camera.

Select video footage and still images of persons of interest or suspects wanted in connection with certain investigations will be posted in a new “Caught on Tape” section on the Service’s website  www.haltonpolice.ca where the public can view the files, and submit leads to police investigators.

If a member of the public recognizes an individual in the new Caught on Tape section, they can confidentially contact police investigators via phone or email, or use CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) to ensure complete anonymity.

“The public plays an integral part in preventing and deterring crime in their neighbourhoods. Now, more than ever, they can also actively assist police in identifying individuals who are of interest to police, in connection with various crimes committed across Halton,” said Chief of Police Steve Tanner.

November 26 2013, Crime, Halton Police, Oakville News“The improvements in the quality of video footage captured on security and closed circuit cameras has vastly improved in recent years, making it very easy to identify the individuals involved. By sharing these images and video footage of suspects with the public via our website, we hope to solve more crimes in Halton, and improve our clearance rates, thanks to the assistance of the public.”

The new Caught on Tape section of the website can be linked to directly at http://www.haltonpolice.ca/CrimeFiles/Pages/CaughtOnTape.aspx Some of the crimes currently posted there include Sexual Assault, Indecent Act, Theft, Break and Enter, Robbery, and Assault.
