The Lodi Police Department invites residents and business owners to help us deter and solve crimes by registering your residential or business security cameras with us. Are you one of the many residents or businesses that have security cameras? If so, you may be able to help us solve a case or even deter crimes before they happen. By registering your cameras with us, we could then contact you in the event an incident occurred near your home or business that is within camera coverage. Then, with your permission, you could be contacted and asked to provide us with a copy of the video footage. This footage would not be released to the press or public, and your information would be confidential and protected by law. If you would like to participate in this free program, download the form today and fill it out. Send it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or mail it to Lodi Police Department, Attn: CCPP, 1 Memorial Drive, Lodi NJ 07644
