Camera Registration Program

Camera Registration

Camera Registration Program BrochureThe Renton Police Department wants to collaborate with local business owners and homeowners to implement a new crime prevention program which will allow residents and business owners to help solve crime and assist in lowering incidents of criminal activity.

By registering your external business or personal camera locations, you can help police protect our community in its crime prevention efforts.  The registration process is fast and simple!

How to Register

Complete the required fields on the registration form and hit "send". Your information will automatically populate the location of your cameras onto a city map that only Renton police can view.

Please Note: Registering your information does not provide the Renton police with direct access to your camera system. This information may be utilized by law enforcement personnel who are investigating a crime in the vicinity of where your camera is located.

Benefits of Registering Your Camera

The Camera Registration Program could help assist the police department to quickly identify nearby cameras that may have captured criminal activity. After registering your camera, you would only be contacted by the Renton police if there was a criminal incident that occurred in proximity to your camera's field of vision. If necessary, Renton police may request to view your camera footage in order to assist in the investigation.


The goal of this program is to deter crime and promote public safety through collaboration between the Renton Police and the community we serve.  Accordingly, all registrants agree to the following terms and conditions:

  • The City of Renton is required to comply with the Public Records Act RCW 42.56.  Therefore, any and all information submitted or provided to the City, including personal information, may be subject to public disclosure as a public record.
  • If necessary, police personnel may request a copy of video captured by your camera, which could assist in the investigation of a crime.
  • Any footage containing or related to criminal activity may be collected by the Renton Police Department for use as evidence during any stage of a criminal proceeding.
  • Under no circumstances shall registrants interpret that they are acting as an agent and/or employee of the City of Renton or the Renton Police Department.
  • If necessary, the Renton Police Department will contact you directly, using the information provided on your camera registration form, to request the appropriate video.
  • You may withdraw from the program at any time by notifying the Community Programs Unit at 425-430-7521 or [email protected].
  • The Renton Police Department will remove you from the program with five (5) business days (in most cases).  However, previously submitted information, mapping and videos will remain part of the record and subject to the Public Records Act and criminal proceedings.

By submitting this information, the camera registrant understands and agrees to the above policy and terms of use.
