Cherokee Indian Police Dept. introduces new community security cameras


August 30, 2018

The Cherokee Indian Police Department is having 10 Tsunami Security Cameras installed that will be placed throughout Cherokee. These Tsunami Cameras will be mounted in areas that experience a high rate of reported crime and will give the CIPD the capability to electronically patrol these areas and access evidence of reported crime.

“One of our department goals is to reduce, solve, and prevent crime,” said Doug Pheasant, Cherokee Chief of Police. “These cameras are a tool for us to reach that goal. We plan to place the cameras in areas where we have had a high number of incidents or crimes reported and in areas of high traffic. In a sense they are force multipliers. We will now have ‘eyes and ears’ in these areas 24 hours a day seven days a week.”
