Red Deer RCMP launch security camera registry

Red Deerians can now register their security cameras in police database

Red Deer RCMP have launched a new security camera registry.

The voluntary resource will contain the location of security cameras owned by businesses and residents to assist in police investigations.

“Implementing a camera registry was identified in Red Deer’s current annual policing plan as an initiative to prevent and reduce property crime,” said Staff Sgt. Jay Peden, acting operations support officer of the Red Deer detachment.

The system “gives our members another resource to assist in their investigations, and could reduce the time, effort and cost of our investigations.”

To register a camera and to learn more, visit www.reddeercapture.ca.

Only the location of the cameras and contact information is recorded on the secure site.

Registering a camera does not give police access to cameras or the footage. If an incident happens, Red Deer RCMP can view the list of camera locations, and contact the registered camera owners to make a request for the images or footage.

“By providing the Red Deer RCMP with the location of your security cameras, you could be helping to shorten the required time for investigations and providing key information to ensure people responsible for crime are held responsible,” said Peden.
