Camera Registration Program

In an effort to continue our public safety partnership with citizens and businesses, the Decorah Police Department is offering a security camera registration program. The Decorah Camera Registry Program allows residents and business owners to voluntarily register the locations of their video surveillance systems with the Decorah Police Department. When a crime occurs, police will be able to identify the locations of nearby video cameras to obtain potential video surveillance. If necessary, police would ask Decorah  Camera Registry Program participants to check their private video surveillance systems for a specific date and time for video that may show activity involved with a crime, and, if they so choose, participants can voluntarily provide copies of video footage to police for investigative purposes.
