Watch: Video Surveillance And Motion Lights Immediate Deterrent

21 June 2019   Officer Jerry Ferguson
Think that lights and surveillance cameras don’t work? Think again! 

The Prescott Valley Police Department encourages all residents in the Quad City area to use surveillance cameras and motion-activated exterior lights to deter criminal activity after dark. 

On Thursday, June 20, 2019, at approximately 4:30 AM in the 6200 block of North Moonlight Way, an unidentified male subject was observed trying to open the door of a vehicle parked in a residential driveway. Because the door was locked, he moved to another vehicle in the driveway. While doing so, the motion-activated exterior light came on, and the subject fled the driveway. 

There was no theft due to three specific things the homeowner does, which Police Chief Bryan Jarrell commends the resident for doing: (1) the vehicles were locked; (2) surveillance cameras were installed and operational; and (3) motion-activated exterior lights were in place. 

If you have information on this incident, please contact the Prescott Valley Police Department at 928-772-9267. 

It’s impossible for patrol officers to be everywhere at once; therefore, it behooves residents to take responsibility for their safety. Residents are always encouraged: “If you see something, say something!” 

Prescott Valley Police Department can be contacted at (928) 772-9267 for non-emergencies, 911 for emergencies. You may also contact your local law enforcement or Yavapai Silent Witness at 1-800-932-3232.
