Voluntary Camera Registration
The Peapack & Gladstone 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 the Borough safe.
The Peapack & Gladstone Police Department is asking residents and businesses around the Borough to voluntarily register their privately-owned surveillance camera systems. The program maps out the locations of cameras so officers can review recordings of criminal activity quicker. The directory does NOT allow officers to tap into private cameras, and would only indicate where the cameras are located. 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.
As crimes occur nearby, residents and businesses are not always aware that their system may have captured information that could help solve the crime, thus keeping our community safer. In turn, the police are also not always aware who may or may not have this potentially vital information.
By registering your camera system with the Peapack & Gladstone Police Department, officers and detectives will be able to identify what cameras may have captured criminal activity. You would only be contacted by the Peapack & Gladstone 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, Nest, hard wired or wireless systems, would be accepted.
