EPD press release:

The Eureka Police Department is now utilizing the Security Camera Registration module within Citizen RIMS, the online tool that integrates with our computer aided dispatch system.

Security Camera Registration allows residents and businesses within the city limits of Eureka to voluntarily register their cameras. The registration only includes the location and contact information for those wanting to register their cameras. Police will not have access to the camera systems, but will be aware that a camera exists when investigating a crime in or around a particular neighborhood.

Officers and detectives spend a lot of time canvassing neighborhoods for cameras that could potentially hold evidence to a crime. With camera registration, police can look at an interactive map and easily contact those who have registered a camera. Camera registration is a partnership between the Eureka Police Department and the community to help deter and fight crime in our neighborhoods.

Cameras can be registered using the Security Camera Registration link on our Citizen RIMS website.
