REGISTER NOW

Registration
Filling out the registration form is simple. We ask you to provide basic information regarding the location and direction of your cameras.

Verification
Once you have completed the registration process you will be entered into a police database. A member of the San Ramon Police Department will contact you to confirm the information is accurate.

Call for Assistance
If registered, you would only be contacted by an officer if there is criminal activity in the vicinity of your camera. If necessary, police personnel may request a copy of video captured by your camera to assist in the investigation.

HOW DOES IT WORK? 

The San Ramon Police Department is committed to our partnership with residents and business owners. Many business owners and residents currently operate surveillance systems at their businesses and/or homes. As crimes occur nearby, they are not always aware that their system may have captured information that could help solve the crime, thus keeping our community safer. In turn, the police are also not always aware who may have this potentially vital information.

The Police Department is asking residents and businesses across the city to register their privately owned surveillance camera systems. As the Police Department responds to criminal incidents in our community, they may be able to use the information or footage gathered from the security cameras to assist in the apprehension and prosecution of the criminals involved.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF REGISTERING YOUR CAMERA?

CITIZEN'S VIEW will help the police department to quickly identify nearby cameras that may have captured criminal activity. After registering your camera, you would only be contacted by the San Ramon Police Department if there is a criminal incident in the vicinity of your security camera. Police personnel, if necessary, may request to view your camera footage in order to assist in the investigation. Make San Ramon an undesirable place for criminals to commit crime and help keep your entire community safe!

HOW CAN YOU HELP KEEP YOUR COMMUNITY SAFE?

If your residence or business has a security camera system, you can help the police investigate and solve crimes by registering your security camera in one of two ways:

  • Print out the CITIZEN'S VIEW registration form, complete it and drop it off at the Police Department's front counter or mail it in to the San Ramon Police Department, located at 2401 Crow Canyon Road.
  • If you prefer contact via telephone, or in person, contact the Police Department's Community Services Unit at 925-973-2791.
