LEVEL 1: Register Your Cameras

Let's work together to fight crime! Register your security cameras with Connect Columbus today to help identify area cameras in case of an incident. An investigator from the Columbus Police Department will contact you via email if they need your assistance solving a crime near you.

Both businesses and residents are encouraged to register your security cameras. Camera registration takes less than one minute via our secure online portal. Registering your cameras does not allow the Columbus Police Department access to your live video stream - it only enables investigators to know a camera is present at your location and easily allows police to request video evidence from the camera owner should an incident occur. Upon the request of police, the camera owner will upload the video evidence to a secure website or email the video directly to an investigator.

LEVEL 2: Integrate Your Cameras for Businesses

Businesses can take community security one step further by giving the Columbus Police Department direct access to your camera feed in case of a nearby emergency. Businesses owners can select which camera feeds are shared with the Columbus Police Department.

All you need is a small CORE device that you plug into your camera system.

For more information on camera registration or camera integration, email Lt. Andy Famer at

Please complete Level 1 (Camera Registry) before proceeding to Level 2 (Camera Integration). If you have previously registered your security cameras, please go directly to Step 2 to purchase CORE devices.
