New Camera Registration Program

New Camera Registration Program

How Does it Work? 

Do you use an external video security system or a doorbell camera such as Ring® at your home or business? If you do, the Community Connect Program through the Blaine Police Department is asking for your help in deterring crime, catching criminals, and promoting public safety. 

The purpose of the Community Connect Program is to partner with residents and business owners who have video surveillance on the exterior of their home or business. Whether you have a multi-camera system or just a simple doorbell camera, your participation in this program could help in the event a crime occurs in your neighborhood.

How Do I Participate?

If you choose to participate, registration is quick and easy. Participation is voluntary and you can end your participation at any time. Your information will be kept confidential, secure, and only accessible to police personnel.

 In registering for this program, you are not granting permission for the Blaine Police Department to access any live or saved footage from any private alarm or camera system. If a crime occurs in your area, officers may reach out to you to determine if your device captured any footage and ask if you are willing to share the footage. 

Why Should I Participate? 

The primary goal of this program is to create a partnership between the community and the Blaine Police Department to keep our crime rate low and continue to make Blaine a safe place to live and visit. By registering your camera with us, you are contributing to a database that allows our law enforcement to quickly identify private cameras installed near the scene of a crime. As a part of the Community Connect program, we will provide you with a window sticker that identifies you as a camera registration member. 

The Blaine Police Department has upgraded the camera registration program. The is a replacement for the old program. Those that created an account in the previous system have been migrated, but if you have made changes to your cameras since signing up, please sign up again.
