Video Surveillance Registration Program

The Halifax Police Department has adopted a program in which citizens and businesses of the town can opt in to register their surveillance systems with the Halifax Police Department. You can complete the registration form at the bottom of this page.

This program is completely voluntary, and you may rescind your membership at any time. This program is being implemented to foster a working relationship with the residents and businesses of Halifax, and your police department. There are no fees associated with this program, and your participation is completely voluntary and confidential.

Registering your information does not provide the Town of Halifax with direct access to your camera system and you may delete your registration at any time. Your personal information will be kept confidential by the town unless subject to disclosure by a court order. Your information, with your permission will be accessed by law enforcement personnel who are investigating a crime in the vicinity of where your camera is located.

You will only be contacted by the Halifax Police Department in the future if there is a criminal incident in the vicinity of your security camera. Police personnel, if necessary, may request a copy of any video captured by your camera, which may assist them in the investigation of a crime, or criminal activity.

The goal of this program is to deter crime and promote public safety through collaboration between the Halifax Police Department and the community we serve.

If you wish to participate, please complete the below registration form. If you have any questions, feel free to contact the Halifax Police Department at (781) 294-8713 or e-mail [email protected].

Thank you,

Chief Joao Chaves
