Security Camera Registry
Private home security and business security is a priority for residents and commercial owners in Chatham-Kent. This combined with population growth has led to an increasing number of video surveillance cameras being installed at residences and businesses. Security cameras are an effective crime prevention tool that also assists in solving crime. These benefits extend beyond the home / business to include the community. Police will often contact homeowners / business owners 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 / business owners. This registry enables the members of our community to voluntarily identify their video surveillance location through a simple, secure, confidential, online form located on the Chatham-Kent Police Service website ( http://ckpolice.com/ ). Identified addresses will be mapped on a database of surveillance camera locations for officers to quickly and effectively direct resources when investigating criminal offences within Chatham-Kent. Your participation in this innovative program can deter and prevent crime, and save lives.
The objective of the program is primarily to build a database of camera locations in our community. Adding a security camera to your personal / commercial property is an excellent crime prevention tool, and is a way for you to protect your OWN belongings. Crime prevention is everyone’s responsibility. The presence of cameras is a deterrent to crime. Allowing the police to quickly contact you so that you may check your cameras for potential recordings of crimes in progress is a way for citizens to help make our communities safer for everyone.
The list of registered properties is kept confidential and only the police will have access to it. When a crime occurs, officers can locate the scene on a “crime map” and instantly see which residences / businesses in the neighbouring areas have security video that may be of use.
