Camera Registry Program

The New Brighton Department of Public Safety invites citizens to participate in a collaborative approach to crime prevention and crime solving by joining our Public Camera Registry Program. The Public Camera Registry is a voluntary program that allows residents and business owners to register the location of their existing, external-facing security cameras. By registering your camera, you will play an active role in improving the safety of your community.

How does it work?

  • Citizens with external-facing security cameras at home or their business register using the form below.
  • If an incident occurs in your neighborhood near your cameras that a police investigation would benefit from the support of video footage, an investigating officer will contact you via email to request the specific footage.
  • The email will provide easy-to-follow instructions to upload and share the requested footage.
  • As this is completely voluntary, citizens can opt-out at any time.

This program will provide a faster, more efficiently streamlined process for police to receive evidence from our citizens.

By participating in the program, you will be assisting New Brighton DPS prevent and solve crime in our community, as it will provide officers with evidence and potential suspects to complete their investigations.

It’s also free, convenient, secure, and easy to register!
