The security camera registry will enable residents and business owners to “virtually” partner with the police department by registering their private security cameras through a secure online portal on the City of Liberty website. In the event of criminal activity near a neighborhood or business, patrol officers and investigators can check the security camera registry to see if there are registered cameras in the area. Police can then reach out to security camera registrants and ask for their help to review the video footage to seek leads and solve crimes.
Participation in the security camera registry program is completely voluntary. The Liberty Police Department will only access camera footage after an incident has occurred and only with the permission of the camera owner. The police will not be able to access the camera remotely or in real time. Camera owners may leave the registry at any time.
