SafeCams8 is a public safety project of the FQMD in partnership with the New Orleans Police Department 8th District and the Downtown Development District.
The goal of SafeCams8 is to develop a comprehensive list of all the privately owned video surveillance cameras in the 8th District that record activities occurring on a street or sidewalk. The list will allow the 8th District to expeditiously contact a camera owner or operator when police access to a camera's footage is needed to solve a crime or facilitate an investigation.
Participation in SafeCams8 is a way for a private citizen to help the NOPD protect us by registering their cameras with the 8th District.
Before you (the owner or operator of a video surveillance camera which films activities occurring on a street or sidewalk in the 8th District) register your camera(s) with SafeCams8, please read the following:
All information provided by a camera owner or operator when registering with SafeCams8 through this website is transmitted directly to the 8th District. FQMD, the Vieux Carré Commission, Downtown Development District, etc. do not have access to the registration information you provide.
Participation in SafeCams8 is voluntary. There is no obligation to maintain a camera's video surveillance capability or to provide video footage to the NOPD.
NOPD will contact a camera owner or operator when surveillance footage is needed to aid in an investigation, or solve, or prosecute a crime.
Participation in the SafeCams8 project does not create an agency or employee relationship between the camera owner or operator and the NOPD.
If a camera owner or operator would prefer to send the SafeCams8 registration information to the 8th District by email instead of registering below, please email the information to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Every owner and operator of a video surveillance camera that films activities occurring on a street or sidewalk in the 8th District is requested to please participate in SafeCams8 by clicking on the logo below and register.
