BPD Asks Businesses to Register Surveillance Cameras
Written by Dan Fischer on January 16, 2018
New Release: Batavia Police Dept.
The Batavia Police Department is asking citizens and business owners with surveillance cameras to partner with us in the fight against crime! The Batavia SafeCam Registration Program allows citizens / businesses to register their camera systems with the police department to aid in crime prevention strategies and investigations which may occur in the proximity of their camera systems. The registration process is very easy and free. Simply go to THIS SITE and fill out the form. Registration forms can also be picked up at Batavia Police Headquarters located at 10 W. Main St., Batavia, NY.
Surveillance cameras have been an integral part of fighting crime in Batavia. Privately owned camera footage has helped solve a variety of serious offenses in Batavia over the years, including various burglaries, a fatal hit-and-run accident, and even a homicide. Working together, we can keep Batavia a safe place to live and work.
Please note that the police department will not have the ability to freely or remotely access your cameras, claim ownership, or dictate the camera systems functions. This is simply a database that will allow the Batavia Police Department to see who might have captured footage related to a particular crime.
