  • Community Cam is a voluntary, not for profit community initiative where people can register a property with CCTV, and upload CCTV footage, to help solve crime in their neighbourhood. When a crime is committed, the NZ Police can refer to Community Cam to quickly identify CCTV locations of registered users in and around the scene of the crime. This then allows the police to contact you to help with an investigation. Your details are confidential and secure. Only the NZ Police can see your information and, if you choose to upload your CCTV footage, the footage is password protected for your security.

Community Cam just lets them know who owns a CCTV system to save valuable time door-knocking. Let’s work together to help solve a crime.
