The Becker Police Department is looking to collaborate and partner with citizens with this Neighborhood Security Camera Program. This voluntary program is an opportunity for citizens and businesses to assist the Becker Police Department in investigations by providing security camera footage. This footage often comes from cameras mounted externally on a business or residence and directed at an area that may be of assistance to the Police Department. By participating, you are not allowing the Police Department direct access to your camera system, rather you are indicating that an Officer can contact you should an incident occur near where your camera is located and any footage obtained could assist in the investigation. The goal of this program is to work closer with our citizens and community to better investigate crimes and to deter further criminal activity.
