Princeton Police offer voluntary Community Camera Program

In furtherance of the concept of community partnerships, the Princeton Police Department has developed a Community Camera Program that will allow residents and/or business owners to register their surveillance cameras with the police department.  The department is requesting residents, businesses and organizations that have security cameras in place on their property to complete a short registration form. The registration is voluntary and does not give the Princeton Police Department access to your camera system. It allows the police to maintain a database of active cameras in the event a crime occurs in the area.

If you would like to partner with the Princeton Police Department in deterring criminal activity and capturing violators, you are encouraged you to register your surveillance cameras with the PPD. Resident or business owners can register your system on the Department’s website:

Or by completing this short form:

If residents or business owners have any questions about the program, please call Sgt. Chris Tash at (609) 921-2100 ext. 2184.
