Prince Edward OPP reports – 2022

PEC OPP joins video and doorbell camera program

The Prince Edward County Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) has partnered with the Belleville Police Service to join the CAMSafe program.

CAMSafe, a community CCTV and security video registry, was established by the Belleville Police Service in June of 2021 and is now expanding into other communities across the province, including the Quinte West OPP detachment.

CAMSafe is designed to provide a starting point for officers to obtain video footage to assist an investigation. For example, if a crime occurs in your neighbourhood, an officer can log into CAMSafe, determine who has cameras registered and request footage from the owners.

Residents who wish to partner with police in solving crimes in their community can go to CAMSafe.ca and register video cameras/ doorbell cameras. Only basic details, such as a name, address a nd contact information are necessary to participate.

This is a voluntary, community-driven program and participants can add or delete their information at any time and only police have access to your details.

There is no direct access to cameras or account information through CAMSafe – it is only a directory for officers to utilize during investigations to locate the owners of potential footage.

Prince Edward County OPP encourages residents and businesses to register their cameras on CAMSafe.ca. Together, we can help to reduce crime in our community.
