The Camera Registry is a map-based database and a website. The Registry allows residents and business owners to register the locations of their video security systems with OPD. OPD will then be able to see where cameras are located.
If you register your camera, OPD will contact you if video footage is sought in connection to a criminal investigation – OPD will always ask permission to review the video on your security system. Your camera may have captured information that can help solve the crime!
Recordings at the time of an incident may provide useful information related to the crime, such as a getaway car or the direction that a person of interest was headed.
