Community CrimeCam Program
Video surveillance continues to be one of the best methods for apprehending criminals and convicting suspects who are caught in the act of committing a crime. 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, thus keeping our community safer. In turn, the police are also not always aware who may have this potentially vital information.
The Flemington Borough Police Department has created the Community Crime-Cam Program which is a voluntary community safety initiative that allows both businesses and residents to partner with the Flemington Borough Police in the fight against crime throughout the Borough.
When a crime occurs in a specific area, the Flemington Borough Police Department will call you and request a copy of the video footage. This footage will help establish leads, identify suspects and save valuable investigative time. All registered camera locations will be stored in a secure database allowing the Flemington Borough Police Department to map out locations of cameras throughout the town. Residents and Businesses will only be contacted by the Flemington Borough Police Department in the event of a crime occurring in the area of their camera coverage.
This program is entirely voluntary and consent to view video footage from your camera could be withdrawn at any time. The Flemington Borough Police Department will not request to tap in or access private video surveillance cameras. The program is not intended for active surveillance or monitoring of surveillance cameras.
If you would like to tell us that you have video surveillance and allow Detectives to contact you should a crime occur in or near where your cameras are installed, we kindly ask that you let us know by filling out our downloadable registration form (PDF).
