Using every available resource can assist Euclid Police Officers in helping to solve crimes. Residents who have security cameras installed can help the investigation by providing their video footage to police when a crime occurs in their neighborhood. But how would police know if you have a security camera installed? Often, officers walk to each home and look for installed cameras, but there is simpler way. Residents in Euclid may take advantage of a free, voluntary program to register their installed security cameras through a program offered by the Cuyahoga County Office of the Prosecutor. Officers have access to the list of camera owners and can contact residents if police believe the camera systems captured evidence.
1. Participation is voluntary.
2. Registration information is not public, and only used by Law Enforcement Officers.
3. Euclid Police do not have access to your camera system, only information that you own and operate your own security camera system.
4. Residents give permission for Euclid Police to collect the video footage that may contain evidence of criminal activity.
5. Under no circumstance should registrants construe they are acting as an agent or employee of the City of Euclid or the Euclid Police Department.
Questions about this program can be directed to the Euclid Community Policing Unit at 216-289-8449. To register your security camera system for the City of Euclid, go to this website page: http://prosecutor.cuyahogacounty.us/en-US/camera_registration1.aspx
