In an effort to increase our ability to investigate criminal activity more efficiently and effectively, the South Orange Police Department is asking for businesses or residents with video surveillance cameras (including doorbells) to voluntarily register them with the Police Department. This will enable us to respond quickly to the location of the cameras and work with the owner to possibly recover evidence of a crime or the identity of a potential suspect. This program is completely voluntary and the information will be utilized for Official Police purposes only.
This is not a request to have open access to your system, merely a way for us to know who or where to turn to if needed.
On the registration form, you’ll be asked to provide contact information as well as basic information about the location and recording of your cameras. An electronic version of the registration form is available and includes fields for additional details. There is no fee to register, and your information will be kept confidential. You can unsubscribe from the program at any time. We ask that if you have more than one location you would like to register please submit separate forms for each location. After completing the form please follow the directions listed at the bottom.
