Voluntary Camera Registration Form
Police Department


This program allows residents and business owners to register the location of their video surveillance system with the Kewanee Police Department.  When a crime occurs, members of the police department will be able to quickly identify the locations of nearby cameras and enlist the assistance of the community to help officers and investigators collect any video evidence.  Participating in the Voluntary Camera Registration Program will allow the Kewanee Police Department to directly contact members of the program who are in an area in which a crime occurred.  Police may ask program members to check their video footage for a specific date and time that may show activity involved with a crime. Please complete our survey here if you would like to register your camera. 

Registration is voluntary and there is no cost associated with registration. Registering your camera(s) does not provide the Kewanee Police Department with direct access to your cameras. You may request your registration be removed at any time. An individual’s personal information will be kept confidential by the Kewanee Police Department subject to disclosure only as required by law, court order, or law enforcement purposes. Police personnel, if necessary, may request a copy of any video captured by your camera, which may assist in the investigation of a crime. 

Any footage containing or related to criminal activity may be collected by the Kewanee Police Department for use as evidence during any stage of a criminal proceeding. Under no circumstance shall registered members act as an agent and/or employees of the Kewanee Police Department through the program. If necessary, the Kewanee Police Department will contact you using the information provided during registration and may request the appropriate video surveillance footage. By submitting this information, the registered member understands and agrees to the above policy and terms of use.
