Security Camera Registration

If your residence or business has a security camera system, you can help the City of Griffin Police Department investigate and solve crimes by registering your camera system. If a crime occurs in the vicinity of a registered camera, a representative from the City of Griffin Police Department may contact the registered owner of the camera and ask to review the recorded footage relevant to the date and time of the incident.

 

NOTICE: The City of Griffin Police Department, with the camera owners consent, may utilize this information to view footage/feeds from the camera storage owned by the registrants. If applicable, this information will be used to prosecute or identify suspects and offenders. To insure privacy the City of Griffin Police Department WILL NOT have the ability to link directly to the system or view the camera footage real time.

 

Individuals wishing to participate in the program can click the link below and fill out the form. To register multiple locations, use separate forms for each address.

 

Please note: camera registration is encouraged, but not required - participation in the program is strictly voluntary.

 

For more information about the program, or to report a change in status (e.g. no longer utilizing security cameras, change in camera locations, no longer residing at the address), please email the City of Griffin Police Department Security Camera Registration Manager.

 

By submitting this form, the registrant is aware that video evidence may be used for a criminal prosecution which may subject the footage to the release of video imagery to the public or media once a criminal prosecution is complete. The database of registrants, their contact information, personal information and the location and number of cameras shall be treated as CONFIDENTIAL AND SHALL BE EXEMPT FROM DISCLOSURE pursuant to:

O.C.G.A. 50-18-72

(3) Except as otherwise provided by law, records compiled for law enforcement or prosecution purposes to the extent that production of such records is reasonably likely to disclose the identity of a confidential source, disclose confidential investigative or prosecution material which would endanger the life or physical safety of any person or persons, or disclose the existence of a confidential surveillance or investigation;

And

(19) Records that reveal the names, home addresses, telephone numbers, security codes, e-mail addresses, or any other data or information developed, collected, or received by counties or municipalities in connection with neighborhood watch or public safety notification programs or with the installation, servicing, maintaining, operating, selling, or leasing of burglar alarm systems, fire alarm systems, or other electronic security systems;
