Security Camera Registration
In an effort to increase our ability to investigate criminal activity more efficiently and effectively, the Delran Police Department is asking those businesses or residents with video surveillance cameras to voluntarily register them with the Police Department. This will enable the Police Department to respond quickly to the location of the cameras and work with the owner to possibly recover evidence of a crime or the identity of a possible suspect. This program is completely voluntary and the information will be utilized for Police purposes only.
On the registration form, you’ll be asked to provide contact information as well as basic information about the location and recording of your cameras. There is no fee to register, and your information will be kept confidential. We ask that if you have more than one location you would like to register please submit separate forms for each location. After completing the form it may be submitted electronically by the submit button. To access the form – CLICK HERE
