BAYONNE, NJ - A partnership between the Bayonne Police Department and members of the community with privately owned security cameras can help resolve incidents when they occur, Bayonne Police Chief Robert Geisler reminded residents Thursday.
By registering the location of their cameras, Geisler said, police officers investigating any incident may, with the owner’s further permission, be able to access footage to resolve incidents more quickly, identify criminals in a timely manner, and recover stolen property at a greater rate.
The Bayonne Police Department does not share the locations of registered cameras. This information is used solely by the Bayonne Police Department.
Thanking residents that have already registered their cameras and Geisler asked for all to do it again to ensure that databases are up to date.
“There have been numerous success stories as a result of our partnerships with our community members who have registered their cameras with us,” Geisler said. “These partnerships have allowed the Bayonne Police Department to hold criminals accountable for their actions and to recover stolen property and return it to the rightful owner."
