The Kirtland Police Department Surveillance Camera Registration and Mapping program provides an opportunity for residents and business owners to help officers solve local crimes with the help of video surveillance cameras. With the popular use of surveillance systems in communities, video evidence has frequently helped officers develop leads and conclude investigations.
Participation in this program is and WILL BE ALWAYS VOLUNTARY.
How it works:
Using the geographic location of registered cameras, Kirtland Police officers will be able to directly contact a registrant to determine if they have helpful recordings, should a crime occur near the registered surveillance system. This is NOT big brother watching in and the Kirtland Police Department will not be “monitoring” your surveillance cameras.
Registration is voluntary.
Registration information will be used by the Kirtland Police Department only for official purposes.
Any footage containing or related to criminal activity may be collected by the Kirtland Police Department for use as evidence during any stage of a criminal proceeding.
Under no circumstances should registrants construe they are acting as an agent or employee of the City of Kirtland or the Kirtland Police Department.
If you wish to withdraw from the program, contact, at any time the Kirtland Police Department at the attention of Ptl. Zach Petric.
