“Neighbors helping Neighbors…Help the Police”

By registering your home or business surveillance cameras you can help solve crimes within your Community.

Community ShareCam is a community safety program instituted by the Wayne Township Police Department (“WPD”) which allows both residents and businesses to partner with the WPD in the fight against crime throughout the Township. Simply by registering your home or business Surveillance System with the Wayne Police you can be an invaluable asset in solving crimes in your neighborhood. When a crime occurs in your neighborhood, the Wayne Police will call on you and request a copy of your video footage. This footage will help establish leads, identify suspects, and save valuable investigative time. All registered camera locations are stored in a secure database and are entered into our Records Management System allowing the WPD to map out locations of cameras throughout the town. Community ShareCam Wayne does not provide the Wayne Police with direct access to your Surveillance Systems. Residents and Businesses will only be contacted by the WPD in the event of a crime occurring in the area of their camera coverage.
