The West Fargo Police Department has launched a voluntary security camera registration program. Community members and business owners with security cameras, video doorbells and similar systems can register to inform the West Fargo Police Department of the presence of private surveillance systems that may assist officers investigating criminal activity in the area. 

“The West Fargo Police Department requests the community’s assistance to keep criminal activity low in our city,” said Chief Denis Otterness. “This new program informs our officers that your property has a security camera with recordings residents may be willing to share to assist in solving a crime.”

When a crime is committed near an address with a registered security camera system, officers from the West Fargo Police Department may contact the registered participant and request to see any available video. Participants registered in the program can determine whether or not to share their video with police at any time. Enrollment in this program does not grant the West Fargo Police Department direct access or control over any privately-owned cameras or security systems. 

Those who wish to register their security cameras can easily register through the West Fargo Police Department’s website
