Cuyahoga County

Surveillance Camera Mapping Project


About the program:

The Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office Crime Strategies Unit would like to invite you to assist their efforts with a new initiative surrounding surveillance cameras. This initiative would benefit all of us by helping to keep our streets, yards, homes, and businesses safe.

Simply put, the Prosecutor’s Office would like to locate privately owned security cameras in our community, either residential or commercial. When video footage in a specific area would be useful, we would like the local police department to be able to contact the owner of the camera. This will allow law enforcement to view the footage and request a copy if it is helpful to their investigation.

Please consider participating in this program, which is completely voluntary, but would go a long way in enhancing security.

Your information will be securely kept with the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office and will only be shared with our law enforcement partners. Personal contact information will not be furnished to the public. This information will be used strictly for investigative purposes to make our communities a safer place to live.
