Clarkstown PD Announces Video Surveillance Camera Registration Program

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT FROM CPD

Many residents and businesses are now utilizing surveillance cameras and these cameras may capture persons and events without the owner’s knowledge and this captured information may help the police department solve crimes and help keep the Town safe.

The Clarkstown Police Department is asking residents and businesses around the Town to register their privately-owned surveillance camera systems. As our officers respond to reports of criminal activity in our community, they may be able to use the information or footage captured on these security cameras to assist in the apprehension and prosecution of the criminals involved. All you need to do is click on the registration link located on the police department website and fill out the registration form: http://www.town.clarkstown.ny.us/town_hall/police_department

By registering your camera system with the Clarkstown Police Department, officers and detectives will be able to identify what cameras may have captured criminal activity. The program is voluntary and you would only be contacted by the Clarkstown Police Department if there is an incident within the vicinity of your camera system and officers or detectives may request to view the footage in order to assist in the investigation. This program is not one that has remote access to your cameras.

Attached is a snapshot of the CPD website page. Just click on the video camera picture and fill out the form.
