SafeCam Program

SafeCam is the Farmers Branch Police Department's newest crime prevention and investigation tool. The goal of the SafeCam program is to deter crime and promote public safety through collaboration between the Farmers Branch Police Department and the community we serve.

Citizen-provided security camera footage is increasingly becoming an invaluable asset to FBPD, helping establish leads and identify perpetrators. Surveillance video recorded by cameras owned by residents and business owners have resulted in the arrests of numerous criminals. SafeCam is your opportunity to make the neighborhood in which you live and work a safer place for the entire community. Registering your camera not only helps deter crime, but assists the Department in its overall crime prevention strategy in your neighborhood.

All SafeCam information is kept confidential

Residents and business owners who currently have cameras or are looking to purchase cameras can complete three easy steps to register their cameras with SafeCam.

  1. Registering: It only takes about 10 minutes. You will provide basic information, for example, where your camera is located. There is no cost for registering your camera.
  2. Verification: Once you have completed the registration and verification process, a member of the Department will follow up with you to confirm your registration.
  3. Call of Duty: You will be contacted by the Farmers Branch Police Department if there is a criminal incident in the vicinity of your camera. Police personnel, if necessary, may request a copy of the video that was captured by your camera to assist in the investigation of a crime.
By voluntarily registering your contact information with FBPD, detectives will know how to reach you if a crime occurs in the vicinity of your property.

Registering your information does not provide FBPD with direct access to your camera. The Farmers Branch Police Department will only contact you if they believe your camera could contain evidence relevant to a criminal investigation. Evidence provided by your camera could mean the difference between bringing a perpetrator to justice versus leaving a crime unsolved.
