Video Surveillance Camera Form
The Hopatcong Police Department is committed to our partnership with business owners and residents. Many business owners and residents currently operate surveillance systems at their businesses and/or homes. As crimes occur nearby, they are not always aware that their system may have captured information that
could help solve the crime. In turn, the police are also not always aware who may have this potentially vital information.
The Hopatcong Police Department is asking both residents and businesses to voluntarily register their privately-owned surveillance camera systems. As the Hopatcong Police Department responds to criminal incidents within our community, we may be able to use the information or footage gathered from the security cameras to assist in the apprehension and prosecution of those involved.
What are the Benefits of Registering Your Camera?
By registering with the Hopatcong Police Department, officers can quickly identify nearby cameras that may have captured criminal activity. After registering your camera, you would only be contacted by the Hopatcong Department if there is a criminal incident in the vicinity of your security camera. Police personnel, if
necessary, may request to view your camera footage in order to assist in the investigation. Attempts to contact the registrant via phone and/or email will be done during reasonable hours of the day.
Information provided to the Hopatcong Police Department regarding your camera system will be for official use only. Your personal information will be confidential and not be for public dissemination.
