“Recently, a video from a doorbell cam was used by Thornton Police Officers to identify a neighborhood where a porch pirate was operating, and to identify the suspect to make an arrest,” officials said in a news release.

Brighton, Castle Rock and Longmont are other communities with similar surveillance registries.
