THE CITIZEN’S VIEW
WHAT IS THE CITIZEN’S VIEW?
The CITIZEN’S VIEW is a part of the Sausalito Police Department’s crime prevention strategy in your neighborhood and business community. The program partners with residents and businesses to help keep our community safe and solve crime.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Sausalito 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 business owners and residents in the apprehension and prosecution of the criminals involved.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF REGISTERING YOUR CAMERA?
The Sausalito Police Department is committed to our partnership with residents and business owners. Many business owners and residents currently operate surveillance systems at their place of business and homes. As crimes occur in their area, they are not always aware that their system may have captured information that could help solve the crime, thus keeping our community safer. The police are also not always aware of who has potentially vital information. You will only be contacted by the Sausalito 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 Sausalito an undesirable place for criminals to commit crime and help keep your entire community safe!
