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.






Registration is simple and only takes a few minutes to complete. You will provide basic information and tell the New Orleans Police Department where your cameras are located. There is no cost associated with registration and your information is confidential. You may delete your registration at any time.



Once you have completed the registration and verification process, a member of the New Orleans Police Department will follow up with you to confirm your registration. 


Call of Duty

You will only be contacted by the New Orleans 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. 


Terms of Use
