Pleasanton PD urges residents, businesses to register security systems

'This is a valuable tool for our community to use'

The Pleasanton Police Department recently put out a call encouraging all residents and businesses with video security systems to register their cameras with the department in order to help deter criminals and better solve crimes.

Knowing where surveillance cameras are located around the city can be an important tool in investigations, and the resulting video can aid in convictions caught in relevant footage, according to police.

"This is a valuable tool for our community to use," police said, "and will significantly benefit our investigative efforts. Time and again, thanks to our community's assistance, surveillance video has provided our detectives with clues they need to crack the case."

The surveillance camera registry is voluntary, and city police said signing up will only result in your information being shared with law enforcement personnel and does not allow the department direct access nor use of the private security system.

"If a crime occurs in your neighborhood, your surveillance video could be the vital piece of evidence in an investigation," police said. "If your system is registered with us, Pleasanton Police Department detectives may ask you to share relevant surveillance video from a particular date and time."
