NYPD calls on citizens for amateur video evidence

I don't think that they thought this through very far. I have a funny feeling that they are going to be swamped with video of corrupt public servants doing their thing. Do any of you have video evidence of criminal activity in the New York City area that the NYPD should be interested in investigating? I don't see any reason why professional video evidence can't be offered, too.

The URL for video uploads hasn't been made public yet. Please update this thread as soon as you see NYPD's URL published!

New Yorkers can soon take a bite out of city crime by uploading video or photo evidence directly to the New York Police Department, in a move welcomed on Thursday by civil rights groups.

"We're putting that technology in place to enable us to do that," said Police Commissioner Ray Kelly, adding that the service will be available soon.

"It's a fact of life," Kelly said. "Everybody has a camera in their telephones. When people can record an event taking place that helps us during an investigation, it's helpful."
