Police in Norway looking for Sentry Mode footage to help solve attempted murder

New Sentry Mode icon

The cameras on Tesla vehicles are usually used to help identify and capture criminals breaking in to Tesla vehicles or vandals keying them.

Now police in Norway are looking for footage from Tesla vehicles in the area of a recent attempted murder.

According to media reports in Norway, someone tried to burn down the home of Sandefjord Mayor Bjørn Ole Geditsch. Without any leads on a potential suspect or suspects, the Tesla community in the area, has been asked to review their Sentry Mode footage to see if they captured anything unusual around the time of the incident.

This isn’t the first time authorities have called on Tesla owners to help solve crimes. Police in British Columbia have asked for help from Tesla owners several times, like in this fatal shooting in Surrey last year.

As the popularity of Tesla continues to increase, and with the cameras on Tesla vehicles always recording, we’ll likely be seeing a lot more of these kinds of requests from authorities in the future.
