Click It or Ticket Memorial Campaign Results (May 23-June 5)

The 2022 Click It or Ticket Memorial Campaign ran from May 23rd – June 5th.

Not only were Officers looking for Seat Belt Violations, they were also looking for other violations which would constitute hazardous driving behaviors.

The following is the data which was gathered from this campaign:

Seat Belt Violations – 177

Child Seat Belt Violations – 9

Intersection Violations – 59

Distracted Driving Violations – 11

Speed Violations – 74

Arrests – 1

Total Stops – 437

Enforcement Hours Worked – 171.67

The purpose of the campaign was to educate the public on the importance of buckling up every time they get into a vehicle and travel on a public roadway. The more people buckle up while driving, the less likely they are to be seriously injured or killed in a motor vehicle crash.

Wichita Falls, let’s continue to do our part.

WFPD Launches Voluntary SafeCam Program

***WFPD Launches Voluntary SafeCam Program***

Criminals, you’ve been warned. The Wichita Falls Police Department is rolling out a new investigative and crime prevention tool to help curb crimes here in our city.

SafeCam is a widely used and successful program in police departments across the country, and now it will be used to strengthen the partnership between Wichita Falls Police Officers and the community members they serve.

The concept is simple. Businesses and residents can register their security cameras with WFPD. People registering will give basic information such as their name, address, how many security cameras are operational and the direction they are pointed.

By compiling a list of known security cameras in neighborhoods, officers will be able to streamline investigations and directly contact residents or businesses who potentially caught suspects on camera. This partnership helps speed up the process of identifying and arresting suspects to prevent more crimes from occurring.

Security camera video is invaluable for investigators. SafeCam will make it easier to quickly solve neighborhood crimes and allow officers to take a proactive approach to stopping crime sprees.

The information provided to WFPD remains completely confidential, and in no way are officers able to view video unless it is voluntarily provided by the owner. Residents and businesses can voluntarily register their information and can opt out of the program at any time.

To register or find out more information about the program, click here: www.wfpdnow.com/safecam

This project will run in conjunction with, and as a supplement to, the Neighbors app by Ring.
