Community Camera Program

Warrenton Police Department
Community Camera Program

Do you currently utilize video surveillance at your home or business?
If you do, we would like to hear from you!

Video Surveillance is one of the best methods for apprehending criminals and convicting suspects who are caught in the act of committing a crime.  Installing video surveillance is a great crime prevention tool and can capture valuable information as well as deter crime.

How it works:
The Community Camera Program allows residents and business owners to register the address with the Warrenton Police Department.  With this information, the Warrenton Police Department will know the locations of nearby video cameras and be able to collect video evidence and follow up on leads.

Video surveillance is one of the best methods to catch suspects and convict them.  As crimes occur nearby, many residents and business owners are unaware that their camera systems may have captured information that could help solve a crime.  Likewise, police are not always aware of who may have potentially vital video surveillance.

Once your camera is registered, the Warrenton Police Department will contact you if a criminal incident occurred near your security camera and police believe viewing your video footage will assist in the investigation.


To register your address, please fill out the online form at

or email the following information to
*Name *Address *Neighborhood *E-mail Address *Contact Phone Number

Terms and Conditions
The information you provide regarding your camera systems will be for official use only.  Your personal information will remain confidential and not be distributed except as required by law or court order.  This program is entirely voluntary and you can withdraw consent to view video footage from your camera system at any time by calling Warrenton Police Department.  If necessary, the Warrenton Police Department will contact you directly, using the information provided by you at the time of registration, to request the appropriate video surveillance footage.  Any footage containing or related to criminal activity collected by Warrenton Police Department may be used as evidence during any stage of a criminal proceeding and registrants could be subject to a court subpoena.   Under no circumstances shall the registrants construe that they are acting as an agent and/or employee of the City of Warrenton or Warrenton Police Department through the program.
