Foster City Police Announces the Neighborhood Video Imaging Program (“V.I.P.”)
For Immediate Release: November 08, 2017
Contact: Corporal Travis Murray, (650) 286-3351, tmurray@fostercity.org
The Foster City Police Department is launching the Foster City Neighborhood Video Imaging Program ("V.I.P."), and is hoping to partner with our local residents and business owners to create a database of privately owned security cameras that will enhance crime prevention and detection by assisting with the ability to solve crimes. In many cases, video captured by private surveillance cameras provide the critical piece of evidence that ultimately solves a case.  

Residents and business owners may now voluntarily register their private video surveillance cameras with the Foster City Police Department to be used as an additional investigative tool. By registering your video surveillance camera with our department, you provide the police with an added resource to solve crimes. Should a crime occur in an area where a previously registered security cameras may potentially capture an incident, an investigating officer will check with the owner to see if the incident was recorded by their cameras and with the owner's consent, obtain the recording as evidence in the case.  

If you would like to partner with us in this innovative program by registering your surveillance cameras with the Foster City Police Department, we kindly ask that you visit our website at www.fostercity.org/nvip to sign-up. Let's work together to make Foster City an even safer community and one that is less desirable for those looking to commit crimes.

The Foster City Police Department looks forward to partnering with community members to make Foster City a safer place to live, work, and play. If you have any questions about the program, please contact Corporal Travis Murray at 650-286-3351 or tmurray@fostercity.org.
