Grey Bruce OPP has implemented the CAMSafe program.
CAMSafe is a program aimed at creating a database of residential and commercial security cameras within a community which may act as a resource for police.
When an officer uses the CAMSafe database, they see a map of the local area. Officers can click on registered addresses to view further details, such as property owner contact information. Police cannot access your security cameras or cloud-based accounts.
If police would like to examine camera footage, they can make a request to the property owner using contact information from the database. Interested community members are only required to provide basic contact information and camera location, but can include more details if desired, such as the direction the camera faces, footage retention details or screenshots of the camera view.
Registrants can only view their own information, and can delete their account or change information at any time.
