The Campbell Police Department is partnering with residents and businesses in the City of Campbell to compile a list of privately owned surveillance cameras to enhance crime prevention. The goal of the program is to deter crime and promote public safety through a collaboration between the Campbell Police Department and the community we serve.
Registration is voluntary and there is no cost associated with registration. Registering your information does not provide the Campbell Police Department with direct access to your camera and you may delete your registration at any time. Your personal information will be kept confidential by the Police Department and will only be accessed by law enforcement personnel who are conducting an investigation.
You will only be contacted by the Campbell Police Department in the future if there is a criminal incident in the vicinity of your security camera. Police personnel, if necessary, may request a copy of any video captured by your camera, which may assist in the investigation of a crime.
This partnership and sharing of information has already assisted in numerous investigations. One example of a recent success was during an attempted kidnapping that occurred in May 2015. The pre-teen female victim was walking her dog when a suspect pulled up in a car asking for directions. The suspect approached and grabbed the victim, trying to get her into his vehicle. The victim was able to fight back which caused the suspect to flee the scene in his vehicle click here. A surveillance camera at a nearby home captured the suspect vehicle which ultimately allowed detectives to identify and arrest the suspect click here.
