Security Camera Program

As more and more people install security cameras as part of their efforts to deter crime in their neighbourhoods, the Barrie Police Service is launching a camera program to assist officers in quickly determining the location of security cameras that may assist in investigations.

The Camera Program is a completely voluntary, free initiative that only asks residents and businesses to complete a brief registration form to identify the location of their external-facing cameras. If an incident happens in the area, police may contact you to ask if your camera captured any relevant footage.

Police never have access to your camera equipment or feed, and camera owners can decline to participate when contacted. Security camera footage has been critical in investigations within our community as well as across Ontario, with cameras capturing footage that proves helpful in criminal investigations, as well as cases like missing persons.

By joining the security camera program, you can be a part of preventing and addressing crime in your neighbourhood.
