Video Surveillance Registration Program

Registering video surveillance systems is solving crimes! Community members throughout the Vegas Valley are now solving crimes just by registering their surveillance systems! Vegas residences are registering their surveillance systems though the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police program called “Vegas SafeCam”. This program allows our community’s video surveillance systems to help police with their investigations. Before I lose your attention, your video is completely confidential and you are made aware when your video is needed. This program is designed to utilize video surveillance taken by cameras in the area of which a crime happens. This video footage can help identify cars, people, and clues to crimes that are committed. Similar programs to “Vegas SafeCam” have already successfully been implemented with other agencies across the nation. This program is completely free, you can unregister at any time, and all your information is confidential.

 

Here’s how video surveillance registration works:

“A home owner or business owner installs a surveillance system on their property.  Until something happens, the surveillance system is a deterrent, but it does not stop all crime from occurring.  Often times, the surveillance system might catch something useful for the police department; however, it goes unnoticed because the owner is unaware of them capturing anything.  What the program will change is the broadening of possible leads to crimes in your area.  The Vegas SafeCam program will give you and the LVMPD a chance to capture the perpetrator coming, leaving, or actually committing a crime in progress.

For example:  You are a home owner that has recently moved into a new home.  You’ve purchased a home surveillance system and have registered your system with the LVMPD.  Several weeks later, a Patrol officer comes to your door and informs you of a recent burglary in your neighborhood.  The Patrol Officer has used the database for this program in their patrol car, and has gone to your residence for follow-up.  The Patrol officer asks you if it would be possible for you to review your video for a suspicious person or vehicle between the listed times of the event.  Upon reviewing the video, you have captured a possible vehicle in connection of the crime.  This information would be passed on to Patrol Officers working your beat and Detectives working on your neighbor’s case.  During the days ahead, a Patrol Officer stops a vehicle matching the description in the area and they find evidence to the crime that was committed in your neighborhood.  Without the video from your surveillance system, the suspect would not have been caught quickly and may have gone on to committing several more crimes in the area. This is only one example of how this program would work.  There are endless opportunities with this program to make a difference in our community.” -Las Vegas Metro Police Department read their full article here.

How to register your video surveillance system:

The only information needed to register your surveillance system is your name, address, telephone number, and the location and directions of your cameras. Once you are in the system two things would happen. If there was a crime in your neighborhood or business, a Police Officer would contact you to look for possible leads.  Or if you have discovered something yourself, you could contact the LVMPD to have a Police Officer come out to your property.  Together, you and the officer would work hand in hand into solving crime in your area.
