PD offers registration for camera security systems

BEAUFORT, S.C. (Jan. 25, 2023) –  The City of Beaufort Police Department has a new form on its website allowing home and business owners to voluntarily register their security cameras.

As security cameras become more popular, especially in homes such as with the Ring doorbell, they have become a tool that has been helpful to law enforcement in solving crimes, said Police Chief Dale McDorman. “This can help us identify suspects, and bring them to justice,” he said.

If a homeowner has registered a home security camera with the PD, he said, officers will contact the homeowner if a crime takes place in the vicinity of that home to see if officers can review any footage.

“Participation in this is voluntary, and there is no cost associated with it,” McDorman said. “If someone participates in the program, we will not access their video system without their approval.”

The form can be found on the PD’s Request for Services page.
