Kauai Police Department posting videos of crime online

LIHUE (HawaiiNewsNow) - Videos of crimes are now being posted on the Kauai Police Department website.

The police department hopes the public can help identify culprits with the new feature.

"KPD is constantly looking at ways to get the community involved in helping us to deter illegal activity and solve crimes on Kauai," Assistant Chief Roy Asher of the Investigative Services Bureau said. "The online posting of crimes in progress videos is an added tool in soliciting the public's assistance."

Surveillance videos of the suspects caught in the act can be found at www.kauai.gov/police.

The current video hosted on the website is of a male attempting to break into an Anahola residence on May 11.
