The Bradenton Police Department is asking residents and businesses across the city to register their privately owned surveillance camera systems. As officers respond to criminal incidents in our community, they may be able to use the information or footage gathered from the security cameras to assist in the apprehension and prosecution of the criminals involved.
If you would like to participate in this program, contact Sergeant Anthony Cerniglia at firstname.lastname@example.org or 941-932-9303.
Registration is simple! You will provide basic information and tell us where your cameras are located. There is no cost associated with registration, and your information is confidential. You may request to have your registration deleted at any time. Once you have completed the registration and verification process, a member of the Department will follow up with you to confirm your registration.
You will only be contacted by the Bradenton Police Department in the future if there is a criminal incident in the vicinity of your security camera. Police personnel, if necessary, may request a copy of any video captured by your camera, which may assist in the investigation of a crime.
All information provided to the Bradenton Police Department is protected under Florida State Statute Chapter 119 and is exempt from public records request. The program does not guarantee the Bradenton Police Department the right to the information recorded on your camera(s) and you can revoke police access to your system at any time. Your information will be stored and in the event a crime occurs in your area, a detective may contact you to ask to view your camera(s).
