NILES (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- Police in north suburban Niles want to know who has security cameras and where they are.

No one in Niles is being ordered to get security cameras. All Cmdr. Robert Tornabene wants to know is where cameras are located and if police can plot them on a map so that they may have access to the video -- if a crime occurs nearby.        

He cites a recent case of vandalism at a school, in which security video provided good-quality photos of the vandal at work.  

Tornabene urged those with security systems to review the video anytime a crime occurs nearby; to keep doors locked and to look out for crooks on neighbors’ property.
