On January 28, 2013 a new law became effective in the State of New York that allows residential home owners and business owners to voluntarily register their video surveillance cameras for use by law enforcement agencies for the purposes of a criminal investigation.

The program allows residential home owners and businesses to register their video surveillance equipment through an online form. All information is held confidential.


At any point in time, the residential home owner or business owner may withdraw their registration from the video surveillance access database by completing the withdrawal form. Upon processing, the contact information will no longer be accessible by law enforcement. Please allow 5 business days to complete the withdrawal process.
