The Grand Forks Police Department is glad to announce our new camera registration program. This program allows citizens and business owners to register the locations of their outdoor video surveillance systems with the city of Grand Forks. When a crime occurs, police will be able to identify the locations of video surveillance systems and enlist the assistance of citizens to help us collect video evidence.
Using the geographic locations of the registered cameras, we will be able to directly e-mail citizens in an area in which a crime occurred. A common e-mail may ask the citizen to check their video surveillance system for a specific date and time for video capturing a suspect, getaway car or a crime. If the citizen finds any video evidence, they can contact us to make arrangements for video retrieval.
Registration is simple and only takes a few minutes. You will provide basic information and tell us where your cameras are located. There is no cost associated with registration and your information is confidential. You may delete your registration at any time by contacting Sgt. Douglas Wright at the police department. (701)787-8085.
To register your camera, go to the Grand Forks Police Departments web page and click on Camera Registration on the left hand side. The Grand Forks City web page will also have a direct link to the Camera Registration.
