Register Your Security Cameras. Help Solve Crime!


FORTUNA, CA – Video surveillance cameras are increasingly being used in both residential and commercial properties to prevent crime and to memorialize events as they occur. As such, video evidence has become extremely helpful in solving crimes, identifying perpetrators, and serves as valuable evidence in court. 

Criminal investigations frequently involve officers canvassing neighborhoods surrounding a crime scene for security cameras.  Knowing where cameras are located greatly speeds investigations by allowing officers to prioritize where to begin looking for evidence. Many times the best available video evidence isn't of the crime scene itself, but of pathways and streets leading into and out of the crime scene.

The Fortuna Police Department is forming a community partnership that will allow residents and businesses that have surveillance cameras on their property to register them with the police department.

By registering your camera system with the Fortuna Police Department, officers  will be able to identify what cameras in an area may have captured criminal activity.  You would only be contacted by the Fortuna Police Department if there is an incident within the vicinity of your camera system and officers may request to view the footage in order to assist in the investigation.

Cameras can be registered at

The goal of this program is to deter crime and promote public safety through collaboration between the Fortuna Police Department and the residents and businesses we serve.
