Philadelphia Police Department Launches New Crime Prevention & Investigation Tool with SafeCam

New Initiative through Phillypolice.com Allows Residents and Businesses to Partner with the PPD

August 4, 2011

 

What is it?

The Philadelphia Police Department announces the launch of SafeCam, a new online initiative through phillypolice.com, which allows residents and businesses to register their security cameras with the Philadelphia Police Department. “SafeCam is an opportunity to become a part of your neighborhood’s crime prevention efforts,” said Commissioner Charles H. Ramsey. “Security cameras help to deter crime, and they can also assist in solving a crime after it has happened. Private-public partnerships like SafeCam are critical to making our communities safer.”

Why it’s important?

Numerous arrests have been made as a result of the public viewing surveillance video posted through the Department’s website, www.phillypolice.com. SafeCam allows the public to register their contact information, camera type and location of their cameras with the Philadelphia Police Department. Those who register will only be contacted by the PPD if there is a criminal incident that occurs in the vicinity of the registered camera. The Police Department will not be able to view private cameras through SafeCam, only their physical location on a map.

When a crime occurs, PPD officers and detectives will canvas the immediate area in which it has occurred to see if residential or business owners may have recorded the crime in progress with their security camera. The Police Department often works with the camera owner to retrieve video for investigative purposes, and when helpful, posts the video through the Department’s youtube channel (youtube.com/philadelphiapolice). Over 100 videos have been posted since the Department began using youtube in early 2010 to get the public involved in identifying suspects and crimes caught on camera.

How can I get registered with SafeCam?

Registration is simple and takes only about 10 minutes to complete the three steps. You will provide basic information and tell the Department where your cameras are located. There is no cost associated with registration and your information is confidential. Once you have completed your registration, a member of the PPD will follow up with you to verify your information, and you will receive a PPD SafeCam window decal, which you can proudly display in your home or business.
