The Carol Stream Police Department is partnering up with residents and local businesses with this new voluntary program. By registering your camera(s) with the CSPD, it is not only a deterrent of crime, but assists the department in its overall crime prevention strategy in your neighborhood. If you have a security system such as RING, Nest, etc. submitting a registration will be something to take advantage of. The goal of this surveillance program is to deter crime and promote public safety through collaboration between the CSPD and the residents we serve.
Knowing ahead of time where cameras are located greatly speeds up investigations and the apprehension of suspects. The program is simply a registry to let the Carol Stream Police Department know that you have a security camera system, and are willing to assist the police.
Please know that your participation in the program is kept anonymous and police alone will have access to the registry. By collaborating with the CSPD in this effort, you protect your family, your property and your community.
For example if a burglary occurs down the street from your property, we would know your camera may have captured an image of a vehicle or suspect that could connect us to the suspects involved in the crime. At that time a detective would call you and ask to review the footage.
If you have any additional questions regarding the Surveillance Camera Registration program please contact Deputy Chief Mike Zochert at (630) 871-6323 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
