Got an exterior security camera or doorbell camera for your home or business? You can help the St. Charles County Police Department fight crime just by registering your address.
By signing up for the County’s Community Camera Program, you can let police know you have camera recordings available to review if a crime is reported nearby. Audio, video and images recorded by privately owned cameras can be vital for locating and identifying perpetrators, particularly in neighborhoods targeted for vehicle break-ins and package thefts.
“By helping us solve these crimes quickly, you can help protect your community from being further victimized,” says Police Chief Kurt Frisz.
Registering for the Community Camera Program does not give police direct access to your cameras, and it doesn’t force you to share video with police if you later choose not to. The program is simply an address registry that lets officers know you’re open to helping when needed.
