Camera Registration Program
Register Your Security Camera
The Marysville Division of Police encourages residents, businesses, non-profits and religious institutions to install security camera systems on their property and register them with the Marysville Division of Police. This program is intended to help deter crime and assist law enforcement with investigations. If a crime occurs, police will be able to identify the location of nearby video cameras and enlist the assistance of the community to help officers collect video evidence and follow up on leads.
Through the program, the Marysville Division of Police will be able to directly contact camera registrants who have potential video evidence in an area in which a crime occurred. Police would ask registrants to check their video camera system for a specific date and time for video that may show activity involved with a crime, such as a getaway car, person of interest descriptions, or the direction where a person was headed. If video evidence is found, the resident or business owner would contact the Marysville Division of Police at (937) 645-7300 to make arrangements for video retrieval.
This program is 100% voluntary and registrants may opt out at any time. There is no cost involved. Registering your information does not provide the Marysville Division of Police with direct access to your camera. You may request to remove your registration at any time via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.. Registrant information will only be accessed by law enforcement personnel who are investigating a crime in the vicinity of where a camera is located.
You will only be contacted by the Marysville Division of Police if there is a criminal incident in the vicinity of your video camera. Marysville Police personnel may request a copy of any video captured by your camera which may assist in the investigation of a crime.
The goal of the program is to deter crime and promote public safety through collaboration between the Marysville Division of Police and the community we serve. Accordingly, all registrants agree to the following terms and conditions:
As a camera Registration Program Participant you acknowledge any registration information you provide may be a public record subject to disclosure in accordance with the Ohio Public Records Act (Ohio Rev. Code 149.43).
Any footage containing or related to criminal activity may be requested by the Marysville Division of Police for use as evidence during any stage of a criminal proceeding.
Under no circumstances shall registrants construe that they are acting as an agent and/or employee of the City of Marysville and/or the Marysville Division of Police through the program.
The Marysville Division of Police will contact you directly, using the information you have provided during registration, to request the appropriate video camera footage. If you require further verification that you are being contacted by an official Marysville Police representative, please call the Marysville Division of Police at (937) 645-7300 and they will assist you.
