PARADISE, Calif. – Paradise Police want to add more eyes in the sky to keep better tabs on rising crime.

Sergeant Robert Nichols said that they hoping to get 20 trail cameras around the trail area in Paradise.

The Police Officer Association was granted $10,000 by Farmers Insurance. That money will go towards new trail cameras in Paradise.

People in Paradise, like Jennifer Haworth, think trail cameras will benefit the community.

“I think it's a good idea, there's a lot of people who can't be on their properties to watch them,” said Haworth. “Especially people who want to come back and rebuild and there are people that are squatting and stealing stuff, the police can only be in so many places.”

Sergeant Nichols said that you can find these trail cameras in empty lots or even in new construction zones.

“I think it shows that we're trying to find creative ways to address these issues and you know folks like to do anything they can to try and protect their property,” Nichols said. “So I think this goes a long way to try and help that, we can all work together as a community and do the best we can with keeping stuff under control."

The cameras will either be cloud-based or cellular-based technology.

Nichols said that the trail cameras have not yet been purchased. He said the cameras will be small and in some cases, not visible.

They hope to have the project moving forward in March.
