Safe City is the Galt Police Department’s newest crime-fighting program and represents another opportunity for the Galt Police Department to partner with local businesses and community members to help create an even safer place to live, work, and play. Through Safe City, residents and business owners who operate security cameras have the opportunity to help the Galt Police Department prevent and solve crime.
Safe City is a database of personal security cameras owned and operated by businesses and residents of the City of Galt. Those who have security cameras on their business or residence are encouraged to register their cameras through Safe City. In the event a crime takes place near the area where registered security cameras are located, Galt Police Department personnel will be able to quickly contact the owner of the camera to request the footage. By being able to quickly locate and view security footage, Galt Police Department officers will be better able to identify possible suspects and bring them to justice.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Galt Police Department is dedicated to finding new and innovative ways to partner with local residents and business owners. By completing a registration form and submitting it to the Galt Police Department your camera information will be entered into a database. When a crime occurs, officers will be able to quickly access the Safe City database, identify businesses and residences in the area that have security cameras, contact the owners of the camera and request footage which may help identify suspects and assist in the apprehension and prosecution of those involved.
