Citizens' View Security Camera Program
The Belvedere Police Department wants to partner with residents and business owners to help solve crime and keep our community safe. Registering your business or personal surveillance camera may help deter crime and assist the Police Department in its overall crime prevention strategy. Help the Belvedere Police protect your community by registering your surveillance cameras with the Citizens’ View Security Camera Program. Registration is fast and simple.
How Does it Work?
The Belvedere Police Department is committed to our partnership with residents and business owners. Many residents and business owners currently operate surveillance systems at their homes and/or businesses. As crimes occur nearby, they are not always aware that their system may have captured information that could help solve the crime, thus keeping our community safer. In turn, the police are also not always aware who may have this potentially vital information.
The Belvedere Police Department is asking residents and businesses around the City to register their privately owned surveillance camera systems. As the Police Department responds to criminal incidents in our community, they may be able to use the information or footage gathered from the security cameras to assist in the apprehension and prosecution of the criminals involved.
What Are the Benefits of Registering Your Camera?
The Citizens’ View Security Program will help the police department to quickly identify nearby cameras that may have captured criminal activity. After registering your camera, you would only be contacted by the Belvedere Police if there is a criminal incident in the vicinity of your security camera. Police personnel, if necessary, may request to view your camera footage in order to assist in the investigation. Help make Belvedere an undesirable place for criminals to commit crime and keep your entire community safe!
