Community Video Partnership

General Information

Video cameras are one of the best methods for detecting and apprehending criminals. With our Community Video Partnership Program, we are partnering with you to create a secure, private map of locations with cameras so our police officers can quickly contact you if your camera may have captured footage related to a crime.

You can register your security camera that views any public area in the city (sidewalks, streets, parking lots, etc.) If a crime is committed in your area, we may contact you to review footage related to that incident. We would then use that information to apprehend and prosecute the criminals involved.
