Security Camera Registry
Private home security is a priority for residents in Chatham-Kent. This combined with population growth has led to an increasing number of residential video surveillance cameras being installed at private residences. Home security cameras are an effective crime prevention tool that also assists in solving crime. These benefits extend beyond the home to include the community. Police will often contact homeowners to inquire about video surveillance while investigating a crime which has occurred elsewhere in the neighbourhood.
The Security Camera Registry is a community based crime prevention opportunity and investigative resource that enlists the help of Chatham-Kent residents. This registry enables community members to voluntarily identify their residential video surveillance location through a simple, secure, confidential, online form located on the Chatham-Kent Police Service website. Identified addresses will be mapped on a database of surveillance camera locations for officers to quickly and effectively direct resources when investigating criminal offences in your neighbourhood. Your participation in this innovative program can deter and prevent crime, and save lives.
