Community Camera Partnership

Community Camera Partnership
Posted on 06/19/2020
The Pleasant Prairie Police Department has an ongoing crime fighting partnership with Village residents. The initiative, known as the Community Camera Partnership enables residents to share video footage from home security cameras, aimed outdoors, if a crime or suspicious activity occurs in their neighborhood.

The department sees the partnership as a modern day extension of the Neighborhood Watch Program, and will use the footage to solve crimes in the community more efficiently, and to deter future crime from occurring. Through a short questionnaire on the Village website, residents can log their home as a location where a camera may be able to provide assistance should a crime or suspicious activity occur. The locations will be marked on a map. If a crime is reported near one of the locations, officers would then know that they could contact a resident in the area and potentially ask to look at their camera footage.

It is important to note that all aspects of this program are completely voluntary, and that at no time would the police have any remote access to the security system.

The homeowner remains in complete control of their personal camera system. Residents who wish to participate can access the online questionnaire at here. Questions about the partnership, or those wishing to share video footage without completing the questionnaire, can email [email protected].
