The Ewing Police Department Announces Its Community Camera Partnership

Help solve crime in your neighborhood by registering your home surveillance camera(s) with the Ewing Police Department

Community Camera PartnershipThe Ewing Police Department (PD) is announcing its Community Camera Partnership, a voluntary program for residents and business owners to register their home surveillance cameras and video doorbells in a new registry system. Registering your camera(s) will allow the Ewing PD to create a confidential map of security cameras throughout the Township and provide them with additional tools in solving criminal investigations. Registration is completely voluntary, and registrants can opt in or out at any time.

Registering your camera system will NOT provide direct camera access to the Police Department, but rather alert them to the presence of a video surveillance system in the area.

All the information collected in the registration process will only be available to Ewing Police Department Officers investigating a criminal matter. Any information shared with the Department will be strictly confidential. Having this information will allow officers to locate potential evidentiary video and contact the homeowner for a copy in a quick and efficient manner. You would then have the option to voluntarily provide the Officers with the video to help solve the investigation.

Security camera footage is an invaluable asset in criminal investigations and not only causes a decrease in crime due to deterrence, but also increases the likelihood of capture. A decrease in crime may result in an increase in property values, as well as an increased economy for participating businesses. Similar programs are in place in numerous other cities across the country with many reported successes.

How to register your Security Camera(s)

Home owners and business owners can register their systems directly from the Ewing Police Department website (ewingpolice.com).

  • Click on the Community Camera Partnership image on their home page or go to http://www.ewingpolice.com/communitycameras.htm.  Read additional program details about the program.
  • Click on the Click Here to Register button at the bottom of the page.
  • Complete the registration form and click on the Submit button at the bottom of the page.
  • Once you have completed your registration a member of the Ewing Police Department Community Response Unit will contact you to verify your information.
  • Then answer the call, should it come.

Hopefully, you will never need to be contacted for an incident in your area, but if you are, police may request a copy of any video captured which may assist them in the investigation of a crime.

Your video footage may be one of the best methods for catching criminals and prosecuting them.  The Ewing Police invite you to work with them to solve crime and create a safer community through the Community Camera Partnership.
