Register Your Business' Video Surveillance System To Help Fight Crime


The Richardson Police Department is asking for help from businesses and property managers to create a resource for Officers and Detectives in the fight against crime. The Business Video Crime Watch program asks commercial locations in Richardson to volunteer their information and complete an online form that has basic questions about their video system’s capabilities.

If a crime happens, a Police Officer or Detective can check the database for locations in the vicinity of the crime with a surveillance system. If one is listed in the database, Police may contact that location and ask them to review their footage to see if anything was captured that may help with the case.  The police department will never have direct access to any business' video system.

This resource will allow Police to more quickly identify home video camera locations where suspect information may have been captured.

If you have questions, you can contact the Crime Prevention Unit at 972-744-4955.
