If you live in Johnson County and have home security cameras, consider registering your cameras with the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office. Your footage could be invaluable evidence if someone commits a crime near your home.
The Community Camera Partnership program (COM-CAM) securely maps the location of exterior home security systems, so authorities investigating a crime can quickly determine which residents may have video evidence.
Authorities might contact you to see or make copies of video footage related to criminal activity. They may use the footage as evidence during criminal proceedings.
The program is free and open to all Johnson County residents.
"We are excited to offer this opportunity to Johnson County citizens to partner with us to curb criminal activity in our neighborhoods," said Lt. Paul Nonnast.
The program is not intended for active surveillance or for law enforcement officers to check on what residents do in their neighborhoods. The information is housed in a secure database, and authorities will not have direct access to your private video system with this program.
Your data will remain confidential.
