FANWOOD, NJ -- The Fanwood Police Department wants to partner with residents and business owners to help solve crime and keep the community safe. Registering your business or personal surveillance camera with the Citizen/Business Security Program may help deter crime and assist the police in its overall crime prevention strategy.

"Fanwood Police are committed to its partnership with residents and business owners. Many residents and business owners currently operate surveillance systems at their homes and/or businesses. As crimes occur nearby, citizens and business owners are not always aware that their system may have captured information that could help solve the crime, thus keeping the community safer," said Fanwood Police Chief Richard Trigo. "In turn, police are also not always aware who may have this potentially vital information. We are asking residents and businesses throughout town to register their privately owned surveillance camera systems."

The Citizen/Business Security Program will help the police department quickly identify nearby cameras that may have captured criminal activity. After registering your camera, you would only be contacted by the Fanwood Police 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.
