Commercial and Residential Camera Registration

  1. Commercial and Residential Camera Registration

    Make Your Private Security Camera a Crime Fighting Tool!

  2. How does it work?

    The Blaine Police Department wants to partner with residents and business owners who have video surveillance on the exterior of their homes or business. You might have a multi-camera system or a simple doorbell camera at your front door. No mater your level of surveillance your participation in this program will help the police department in the event of a crime in your area.

  3. How do I participate?

    If you choose to participate, start by registering your camera system with the police department at blainemn.gov/camera. Participation is voluntary and you can end your participation at any time. Your information will be kept confidential, secure, and only accessible to police personnel. If a crime occurs in your area, officers and/or detectives may contact you to ask if you have footage of the incident. The Blaine Police Department will not have a direct link or connection to any private alarm or camera system.

  4. Why should I participate?

    The primary goal is to include residents and businesses and give them an opportunity to assist the Blaine Police Department in deterring crime, catching criminals and promoting public safety. By sharing your security footage with us, you may help us in catching a criminal quicker. As a part of the Community Connect program, we will provide you with a window sticker that identifies you as a camera registration member.

  5. May police contact you for video footage?*

    If a crime occurs nearby, and officers are investigating, we may contact you to ask for your permission to look at your video footage.

  6. Where are your cameras?
