Do you currently have video surveillance at your home or business? If so, we would like you to be a C.O.P. (Citizens Observation Program.)
Video surveillance is one of the best methods to apprehend criminals and convict suspects in the act of committing a crime. Installing video surveillance is a great example of community-police partnerships and is highly valued as a police agency serving our community.
The Stockton Police Department is committed to our partnership with residents and business owners. Many business owners and residents operate surveillance systems at their businesses and/or homes. As crimes occur nearby, they are not always aware their system may have captured information that could help solve the crime amd keep our community safer. In turn, police are also not always aware who may have this potentially vital information.
The Police Department is asking residents and businesses across the City to register their privately owned surveillance camera systems. As the Police Department responds to criminal incidents in our community, they may be able to use the information or footage gathered from the security cameras to assist in the apprehension and prosecution of the criminals involved.
By registering, the police department can quickly identify nearby cameras that may have captured criminal activity. You would only be contacted by the Stockton Police Department if there is a criminal incident in the vicinity of your security camera. Police personnel, if necessary, may request to view your camera footage to assist in the investigation. Help make Stockton an undesirable place for criminals and help keep your entire community safe!
To register your video surveillance and allow officers to contact you, should a crime occur in or near where your cameras are installed, we kindly ask you fill out our registration form.
Begin the registration process by printing a registration form and submit it by one of the following methods:
Information provided to the Stockton Police Department regarding your camera systems will be for official use only. Your personal information will be confidential and not be for public dissemination.
