WASHINGTON, D.C. — Residents and business owners here have been given quite an incentive to purchase video surveillance cameras. A new program in Washington, D.C. will provide rebates to home and business owners to help them purchase the cameras in exchange for registering the cameras with the District.

Residents can earn rebates up to $500 and businesses up to $750, according to an NBC Washington report.

“It’s almost impossible to commit a crime these days and not be caught on somebody’s video,” says Police Chief Cathy Lanier.

Feedback on the program has been positive, according to the report. All that is required is to fill out paperwork describing the camera that has been installed, D.C. workers come to check out the cameras and then a check arrives in the mail a few weeks later.

Wanda Hawkins, a resident of the nation’s capital, used the program to improve security around her home and earned a $500 rebate in the process.

“It’s a great idea, a great idea,” Hawkins says. “A couple of my other neighbors are looking into it as well.”

So far, $500,000 has been put into the program, although additional funding will be sought if the money runs out.

Plenty of communities are asking for home owners and business owners to register their cameras, however most do not incorporate a rebate program such as Washington, D.C.
