Let's focus on a safer city
Help solve crime and protect your neighborhood by registering your security camera with NOPD
SafeCam NOLA is a New Orleans Police Department initiative to enlist the help of community members in the fight against crime. The SafeCam online registration service was developed by the New Orleans Police & Justice Foundation at the request of NOPD.
Citizen-provided security camera footage is increasingly becoming an invaluable asset to NOPD, helping establish leads and identify perpetrators. By voluntarily registering your contact information with NOPD through this site, detectives will know how to reach you if a crime occurs in the vicinity of your property. Registering your information does not provide NOPD with direct access to your camera. NOPD will only contact you if they believe your camera could contain evidence relevant to a criminal investigation. Evidence provided by your camera could mean the difference between bringing a perpetrator to justice versus leaving a crime unsolved.
The goal of the SafeCam program is to deter crime and promote public safety through collaboration between the New Orleans Police Department and the communities we serve. Accordingly, all SafeCam registrants agree to the following terms and conditions:
- Any footage containing or related to criminal activity may be collected by the New Orleans Police Department for use as evidence during any stage of a criminal proceeding.
- Under no circumstances shall registrants construe that they are acting as an agent and/or employee of the City of New Orleans and/or the New Orleans Police Department through the SafeCam program.
- If necessary, the New Orleans Police Department will contact you directly, using the information provided on this site, to request the appropriate video surveillance footage.
Use the “Register” button below to register your current security camera with SafeCam NOLA. Registration does not provide NOPD with direct access to your camera, but it will help detectives know how to reach you if a crime occurs near your property.
The City of New Orleans is developing a new opportunity to allow New Orleans residents and businesses to stream live security camera footage directly to the newly opened real time crime center.
