Camera Registration Program
The Seekonk Police Department is seeking your help in fighting crime by taking part in the Seekonk Camera Registry Program (SCRP). The SCRP allows residents and business owners to register the locations of their video surveillance systems with the Seekonk Police Department. When a crime occurs, police will be able to identify the locations of nearby video cameras and enlist the assistance of the community to help officers collect video evidence and follow up on leads. With this program, the Seekonk Police Department will be able to directly contact SCRP participants that are using video in an area in which a crime occurred. Police would ask SCRP participants to check their video surveillance system for a specific date and time for video that may show activity involved with a crime, such as a getaway car or the direction that a person of interest traveled.

Registration is voluntary and there is no cost associated with registration. Registering your camera location does not provide the Seekonk Police Department with direct access to your camera. You may delete your registration at any time by notifying Detective Keith Perry. An individual's personal information will be kept confidential by the town of Seekonk unless subject to disclosure by court order. Your information will be accessed by law enforcement personnel who are investigating a crime in the vicinity of where your camera is located. You will only be contacted by the Seekonk Police Department in the future if there is a criminal incident in the vicinity of your security camera. Police personnel, if necessary, may request a copy of any video captured by your camera, which may assist in the investigation of a crime.
Thank you for your consideration.
