How the camera registry program works

When a crime happens, the camera registry program helps us quickly locate the nearest cameras.

If you choose to register your camera:

  • We will contact you to ask for video if we need it for our investigation.
  • We can't access your camera. We simply know where your camera is, which is helpful if a crime happens nearby.
  • Registration is free and does not require any hardware or a subscription.
  • You set up a personal password-protected profile. You can sign on and edit or delete your information at any time.

Who can see my camera information

Only authorized users can access the information:

  • We don't have direct access to your cameras. We will only use the registry to contact you to request footage if there's a crime in your area.
  • Your data is classified as protected nonpublic data. The information can’t be disclosed in a public data request.
