The use of security camera systems by businesses and property owners to deter criminal activity, as well as to aid in criminal investigations, has become increasingly common in many communities.  Law enforcement agencies from around the world have found that recorded security camera footage can be an important tool in their crime solving efforts.

As part of a new program to leverage the capabilities and resources of private security cameras our department encourages Ventura businesses and residents to voluntarily register their security camera(s) that view and record public areas such as streets, sidewalks, parking lots, etc., with our department. 

The program works whereby should a crime occur in the vicinity of a registered camera, a representative from the VPD might contact the registered owner of the camera and ask to review the recorded footage relevant to the date and time of the incident.         

Questions and Contact Information 

If you have any questions about the program please contact Commander Rick Murray at 805.339.4343 or via email at    

Thank you for your participation.  Working together we can reduce crime.
