UPPD launches Community Camera program

October 31, 2016
UPPD launches Community Camera program


Surveillance Camera



The University Park Police Department has joined a growing list of law enforcement agencies across Texas that partner with residents and business owners who register their privately owned security camera systems.

How will the list help fight crime?

Because they are caught in the act of committing the crime, video surveillance is one of the best methods to catch suspects and convict them. As crimes occur nearby, many residents and business owners are unaware that their camera systems may have captured information that could help solve a crime.  Likewise, police are not always aware of who may have captured potentially vital video evidence.

If your residence or business has a security camera system meeting these two requirements, you can help UPPD investigate and solve crimes by registering your camera system.
 
  • Exterior facing security camera system
  • Camera system records and retains video
If a crime occurs in the vicinity of a registered camera, UPPD may contact the registered owner of the camera and ask to review and/or copy the recorded video that is relevant to the date and time of the incident.  UPPD will not view live video without the consent of the registered owner of the system.  This program is entirely voluntary and you can withdraw consent to view video footage from your camera at any time.

How to register your security camera system

To register your security camera system with UPPD Click Here.

Once you’ve completed the form, hit the “submit” button. Within 48 hours UPPD will contact you to verify your participation.
As a registered participant in UPPD’s Community Camera program you will only be contacted by police if there is a criminal incident near your address and officers believe the review of recorded surveillance footage will help in the investigation of the incident.
