Posted May 23, 2019

Installing video surveillance is a great example of community-police partnerships and is highly valued by the Fort Worth Police Department.

In light of the important role that residential security cameras played in the capture of a kidnapping suspect last weekend, the Fort Worth Police Department reminds residents about its Community Camera Program, a valuable crime-fighting tool.

Video surveillance is one of the best methods for apprehending criminals and convicting suspects who are caught in the act of committing a crime.

The Police Department is asking residents and business owners across Fort Worth to register their privately-owned surveillance camera systems. As officers respond to criminal incidents, they may be able to use the footage gathered from the security cameras to help apprehend and prosecute the people involved.

Residents would only be contacted if there is a criminal incident in the vicinity of their camera. Police personnel may ask to view your camera footage to assist with an investigation.

Register your camera system online.

Information provided to the Police Department regarding your camera system is for official use only. Personal information will remain confidential except as required by law.
