In an effort to reduce property theft related crimes, the Orinda Police Department will soon be utilizing Motion-Activated Surveillance Cameras (Reconyx) and an Automated License Plate Reader (ALPR) within the City of Orinda. The Reconyx cameras will be located at various locations throughout the city and the ALPR camera will be utilized on one patrol car.
The ALPR system will instantly notify officers of stolen vehicles and the Motion-Activated Cameras will be integral in providing suspect leads to investigators. The City of Orinda held numerous City Council meetings which provided an opportunity for the community and City Council to ask questions and provide input.
The Motion-Activated Surveillance Camera (Reconyx) policy can be found on the City’s website at www.cityoforinda.org. With the camera technology and the increase in community involvement, the Orinda Police Department is committed to making Orinda a safer city.
