Do you currently utilize private video surveillance at your home or business?
If you do, we'd like to hear from you.
Video surveillance is one of the best methods for apprehending criminals and convicting suspects who are caught in the act of committing a crime. Installing video surveillance is a great example of community-police partnerships and is something we highly value as a police agency serving our community.
How does it work?
The Menifee Police Department is committed to our partnership with the residents and businesses in our community. Many business owners and residents currently operate surveillance systems on their property. As crimes occur nearby, they may not be aware their system may have captured helpful information that could help solve the crime and keep our community safer. In turn, the police are also not always aware who may have this potentially vital information.
We are asking for your help to solve crime in your community by registering your privately owned surveillance camera systems. As we respond to criminal incidents, we 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.
What are the benefits of registering your camera?
By registering your camera with us the Department can quickly identify nearby cameras that may have captured criminal activity. After registering your camera, you would only be contacted by the Menifee Police Department to request permission to view your camera footage, if there is a criminal incident in the vicinity of your security camera.
You are NOT giving us access to your system or the videos, but letting us know there is a camera in the area that may help in an investigation. Help us make Menifee an undesirable place for criminals to commit crime and help keep your community safe!
Information provided to the Menifee Police Department regarding your camera systems will be for official use only. Your personal information will remain confidential and will not be distributed except as required by law or court order.
