City of Milton Implementing Voluntary Surveillance Camera Registration - Should Dunwoody be Next?

Milton Police are asking residents and businesses to register the location of security cameras to potentially help solve more crimes.   City of Dunwoody is exploring the idea.

Register the location of your security cameras

Do you own a security camera at your home or business that records video footage? If so, the Milton Police Department is asking you to register the location of those cameras to potentially help solve crimes. The Milton Police Department will not have access to online camera feed and camera access will be requested on a case-by-case basis.

Registration is entirely voluntary and all personal information gathered is for official use only and will not be released to any member of the general public.

This police/community partnership operates on a strictly voluntary basis. It is not intended for active surveillance, and Milton Police will not have direct access to cameras. Those who register a camera may be contacted if a crime occurs near that camera, but releasing the footage to police is completely voluntary.

 To register the location of your surveillance cameras, please click HERE*. (Note: this link does not work on Microsoft Edge. Please cut and paste link into another browser to open.)

 *By registering the location of your security camera(s), you understand that you may be contacted in the future by the Milton Police Department. This does NOT give MPD access to any of your hardware - it is the location of the devices ONLY.
