Video Surveillance Camera Registration Program


The Falmouth Police Department is committed to utilizing every resource to prevent and solve crimes and to protect citizens and their property. Many residents and businesses are now utilizing surveillance cameras and these cameras may capture persons and events without the owner’s knowledge and this captured information may help the police department solve crimes and help keep Falmouth safe.

The Falmouth Police Department is asking residents and businesses around the community to register their privately-owned surveillance camera systems. As our officers respond to reports of criminal activity in our community, they may be able to use the information or footage captured on these security cameras to assist in the apprehension and prosecution of the criminals involved.

By registering your camera system with the Falmouth Police Department, officers and detectives will be able to identify what cameras may have captured criminal activity.  You would only be contacted by the Falmouth Police Department if there is an incident within the vicinity of your camera system and officers or detectives may request to view the footage in order to assist in the investigation. Any type of camera system, such as Ring, SimpliSafe, Nest, hard wired or wireless systems, would be accepted.

The Falmouth Police Department respects your privacy. Any personal information you provide to us including your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address will not be released, sold, or rented to any entities or individuals outside of the Town of Falmouth.
