The Rockford Police Department is asking for residents and businesses security surveillance information for good reason.

Community Camera Network isn't a new thing, just new to Rockford. The reason is simple, "surveillance video offers a wealth of resources to law enforcement from visual details of how an incident occurred, to identifying and apprehending suspects."

It's simple, residents and business owners fill out a form including their name, address, contact info (phone and email), and description of your video surveillance system.

After registering, your home or business will be placed on a map that only the Rockford Police Department can access. Your information would only be used if there is a criminal incident in the vicinity of your camera. Information given to us is for official use only and remains confidential.

People complain about the crime in Rockford without understanding crime is aware. This could be a great opportunity to become an eye on the streets as an entire community.

When the community comes together to keep additional eyes on crime, our city becomes a less appealing place to commit those crimes.
