Expanded Eligibility for Police-Private Security Camera Incentive Program

The Montgomery County Department of Police (MCPD) has announced expanded eligibility of the priority areas of the Police-Private Security Camera Program. 

Locations within these areas are now eligible to participate in the program. 

The Police-Private Security Camera Program is designed to deter and solve crimes by incentivizing the installation of security cameras in geographic areas experiencing relatively high crime incidents.  An owner or tenant of a property used as a residence, business, or nonprofit organization located within an eligible priority area may apply.

To participate, individuals, businesses, or nonprofit organizations must register online. Residents must purchase and install their security cameras before applying for reimbursement.  

For more information on the program, including applying and an interactive map to determine eligibility, visit the MCPD website.  

This is a Montgomery County, Maryland announcement.

Good morning Roy. While not a big camera guy, can see the need to have 100% participation in high crime areas. Will likely have one when we move to the suburbs. Enjoy your day.

Good morning Roy,

Unfortunately in today's world and certain areas with such high crime rates the cameras are necessary! Good for the programs to encourage use of them.

That is a wonderful program. For the elderly that live home and alone, being able to check in at all times is a safety relief.

Hello Roy Kelley, sadly, in some areas, a camera is necessary but that doesn't stop the crime either. Have a great Saturday!
