Home Surveillance Cameras Becoming Trend In Residential Neighborhoods

Jonesboro, AR -- "I would strongly advise anyone who is having problems to install these cameras.  I believe you could even do this type of thing yourself," said Jonesboro Police Department Detective, Vic Brooks.

Gene Bosche with Arkansas Communications says he's getting more inquiries about home surveillance equipment in residential areas.

"With some equipment,  you can move the cameras and see exactly what is going on through the internet," said Bosche.

"You can have anywhere from one or two cameras to up to 16 or even 32 if you want," said Bosche.

"If there's a specific room or area in your house that you want to keep an eye on when you're gone much of this surveillance equipment can be customized for your lifestyle.

".....For security, or you've even heard of the nanny cam, if you want to keep an eye on a specific room.  As bad as it sounds, you may want to keep an eye on teenagers when you're gone," said Bosche.

Police suggest if you're having a problem in a specific area of your property, surveillance equipment should be considered.

"It's a small price to pay for peace of mind when you can't always be around.
