Surveillance Camera Registration and Mapping (SCRAM) Program Information
The Dallas Police Department Surveillance Camera Registration and Mapping program provides an opportunity for residents and business owners to help officers solve local crimes with the help of exterior video surveillance cameras. With the popular use of surveillance systems in communities across the U.S., video evidence has frequently helped officers develop leads and bring investigations to conclusion. Participation in the program is voluntary.

How it works:

Using the geographic location of registered cameras, Dallas Police officers will be able to directly contact a registrant to determine if they have helpful recordings should a crime occur in the vicinity of the registered surveillance system.
