FMPD launches volunteer citizen camera program

The Flower Mound Police Department has launched the Citizen Camera Program (CCP), a partnership with resident volunteers to locate potential video evidence that can be used in criminal investigations.

Residents who would like to volunteer information about their home video surveillance system, such as a Ring doorbell, can fill out this online form.

If a crime occurs, FMPD officers and detectives will be able to search the CCP database to determine if a participant is in the area of the crime and might have surveillance footage that would aid in the investigation, according to a news release from the town of Flower Mound. If officers determine a CCP participant might have footage that would help, they could then reach out to the resident to obtain the footage based on the information provided during registration. At no point will the Police Department have access to an individual’s or business’ camera system.

The CCP program is completely voluntary. For questions, email [email protected] or call 972-874-3357.
