The Campbell Police Department has partnered with Fusus, an intelligence platform, to help create an interactive map of private security cameras in Campbell. This map of registered cameras will
- Only be accessible to the Campbell Police Department
- Increase the efficiency of direct video evidence collection
- Provide immediate contact information to investigators for camera owners
- Enable communities to work together to create a safer Campbell
Camera registration takes less than one minute via an online secure portal. Registering your cameras does not allow the Campbell Police Department access to your live stream - it only enables investigators to know a camera is present at you location and easily request video evidence, should an incident occur.
- How does the camera registry work?
The Campbell Police Department camera registry is a way to easily locate the nearest cameras in a designated area during the course of an investigation, emergency event, or emergency response. The camera registry gives private residents and business owners the ability to register their cameras to an online portal, only accessible through permission, for law enforcement to quickly and easily use cameras to create a map of relevant cameras that could obtain actionable evidence for crimes and life-saving data.
- How much does it cost to register my cameras?
Registering a camera does not require any cost or additional hardware. Campbell PD officers will simply obtain a map of the cameras and will not have access to any live streaming capabilities. The registry makes it easier for investigators to contact camera owners for a digital footage request that the owner can fulfill that doesn’t require a police visit.
- Can the Campbell Police Department remotely access my cameras at any time?
No. Registering cameras means the police department will know where your cameras are located in the event of a crime or a critical incident. There is no direct access to any privately-owned cameras and the registry is only used to request footage if an incident were to occur in their vicinity.
- Can my cameras be accessed without my knowledge?
No. Both the Campbell Police Department and Fusus policies require the camera owner to give explicit written permission to access cameras for any reason. Camera access and settings are also entirely controlled by the camera owner.
- Who has access to the camera map?
Only authorized Campbell Police Department users have access to the entire camera registry map in their jurisdiction.
- Can I unsubscribe from the camera registry, and change or delete my information?
Yes. Please contact email@example.com if you need to adjust or delete your registration information.
- Is my camera information subject to a disclosure in a public data request?
No. Your camera registry data is classified as protected non-public data, and is only accessible by authorized users of our system.
