Security Camera Registration
The Edison Police Department has created the Community CrimeCam Program which is a voluntary community safety initiative that allows both businesses and residents to partner with EPD in the fight against crime throughout the Township. Residents and business owners will now be able to register their Surveillance System with the Edison Police Department and immediately become an invaluable asset in solving crimes in their neighborhood.
When a crime occurs in a neighborhood, the Edison Police Department will call you and request a copy of the video footage. This footage will help establish leads, identify suspects and save valuable investigative time. All registered camera locations will be stored in a secure database allowing the Edison Police Department to map out locations of cameras throughout the town. Residents and Businesses will only be contacted by the Edison Police Department in the event of a crime occurring in the area of their camera coverage.
This program is entirely voluntary and consent to view video footage from your camera could be withdrawn at any time. The Edison Police Department will not request to tap in or access private video surveillance cameras. The program is not intended for active surveillance or monitoring of surveillance cameras.
If you would like to tell us that you have video surveillance and allow Officers to contact you should a crime occur in or near where your cameras are installed, we kindly ask that you let us know by filling out our registration form (click here to download) and Email to: email@example.com
For additional information about the Community CrimeCam Program, contact the Community Policing Unit Officer Keith Jackson by phone at 732-248-6462.
