Video Surveillance Camera Registration


Do you currently utilize private video surveillance at your home or business? If you do, we would like to hear from you.


Video surveillance is widely recognized as one of the most effective methods for apprehending criminals and convicting suspects caught in the act of committing a crime. By installing video surveillance, you are protecting your property and actively participating in a community-police partnership that we highly value as a police agency serving our community.


The Lodi Police Department is fully committed to fostering strong partnerships with residents and business owners. We understand that many of you already operate surveillance systems in your homes or businesses. However, it is important to note that when crimes occur in your vicinity, you may not always be aware that your system has captured valuable information that could help solve the crime and make our community safer. Similarly, we, as the police, often need to be made aware of who possesses this potentially vital information.


To bridge this gap and enhance our collective efforts in maintaining a safe community, the Lodi Police Department asks residents and businesses across the city to register their privately-owned surveillance camera systems. Doing so enables us to contact you to access the information or footage gathered from your security cameras, which can greatly assist us in apprehending and prosecuting the criminals involved.



By registering with us, the Lodi Police Department can quickly identify nearby cameras that may have recorded criminal activity. After registering your camera system, you would only be contacted by the Lodi Police Department if there is a criminal incident near your security cameras. Police personnel, if necessary, may request to view your camera footage to assist in the investigation. Help make Lodi an undesirable place for criminals to commit crimes, and help keep your community safe!



To register your video surveillance system, please take a moment to fill out our convenient online form. Your information is treated with the utmost confidentiality and only accessed by authorized personnel for strict law enforcement purposes.
