Camera Registry

Community Camera Registry

We are building an interactive map of security cameras in Clearwater that will:

  • Be accessible only to the Clearwater Police Department
  • Increase the efficiency of direct video evidence collection
  • Provide immediate contact information to investigators for camera owners
  • Enable communities to work together to create a safer Clearwater

Camera registration takes less than one minute via our secure online portal. Registering your cameras does not allow the Clearwater Police Department access to your live video stream - it only enables investigators to know a camera is present at your location and easily request video evidence should an incident occur.

How it works:

  • Registration - Register by providing contact information and location of surveillance cameras. There is not a fee and registration is voluntary. This should only take approx. one minute via our secure portal.
  • Confirmation - Once you have successfully registered, a representative of the “Clearwater Camera Sharing” program will send you a confirmation email. Confirmation emails will be sent out annually to confirm your contact and camera information is still current. You can opt out at any time.
  • Process - If a criminal event occurs nearby and your camera system might have captured information or evidence that could be useful in an investigation, an email request may be sent to the listed contact person. The email will provide the time frame of the crime and some details about the investigation. The investigator may request a copy of your video surveillance during that time frame that could assist in the investigation. The email will provide a secure uplink location for which to transfer the video.
