Does the Police Department store my video?
The community camera program does NOT allow Lincoln Park Police direct access to your cameras or surveillance system. It simply allows us to know that you have cameras that may have the potential to help. If criminal activity occurs within the area of you video system the police department will ask to view your footage in an effort to solve and prevent crimes.
You always retain the rights to your cameras and footage and are not obligated to share that footage with us simply because you signed up for the community camera program.
