Since being founded, the Chesterfield Police Department (CPD) has been dedicated to living out their mission: to protect and serve the community. Each and every day, officers at CPD work diligently to keep citizens in Chesterfield safe and make a difference in their town. With technology becoming more efficient, the department is hoping to purchase some new equipment.
Captain Robbie Adams approached the town council of Chesterfield about getting a mobile tag reader camera system. This system will read license plate images, store data, and connect to the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED). By connecting to SLED, the department will be able to cross-reference information and connect CPD to other law enforcement agencies in the state. This will aid with investigations, missing persons/fugitive searches, and criminal warrants.
“We want to better serve our community and make a difference,” said Adams. The system will help officers better patrol the town and keep citizens safe. After the proposal was approved, Adams and other officers started to get to work to make the system become a reality.
The Chesterfield Police Department hopes to raise $16,775 through RedBasket.org to purchase a mobile tag reader camera system. This system will purchase two cameras. Any additional funds raised would be used to assist with the cost of installation and support, as well as a laptop. Raising these funds will allow the department to enhance their mission and make Chesterfield an even safer place to live. Donate and share their story today!
