SafeCam NOLA is a New Orleans Police Department initiative to enlist the help of community members in the fight against crime. The SafeCam online registration service was developed by the New Orleans Police & Justice Foundation at the request of NOPD.
Citizen-provided security camera footage is increasingly becoming an invaluable asset to NOPD, helping establish leads and identify perpetrators. By voluntarily registering your contact information with NOPD through this site, detectives will know how to reach you if a crime occurs in the vicinity of your property. Registering your information does not provide NOPD with direct access to your camera. NOPD will only contact you if they believe your camera could contain evidence relevant to a criminal investigation. Evidence provided by your camera could mean the difference between bringing a perpetrator to justice versus leaving a crime unsolved.
