How It Works For Police Departments

Search Registry

When a crime happens, officers can use any mobile or computer device to access a secure database and search the address of the incident.

View Registered Cameras

Officers immediately see a heatmap of all registered cameras accessible within a specific radius, including contact information for the camera owner and any key notes.

Contact & Request

Officers can quickly reach out to registrants and request surveillance footage to help establish leads, identify suspects, and save valuable investigative time.


  • GIVE CITIZENS A WAY TO REGISTER their willingness to share security footage with your Department in the event of a possible crime.
  • SAVE POLICING TIME AND HASSLE during investigations by transforming the inefficient, labor-intensive process of door-knocking for footage into a simple, faster way to share information.
  • FORCE-MULTIPLY without multiplying your budget. Free up officers to focus on higher value activities.
  • BUILD ON EXISTING COMMUNITY BEHAVIORS by engaging and supporting citizens who seek to keep their neighborhoods safe (i.e. Virtual Neighborhood Watch).

Save Valuable Investigative Time

Deter Neighborhood Crime

Major Crimes

Every officer knows how imperative it is to gather as much information as possible during the immediate hours after a crime has occurred and the clock continues to tick. No longer will officers have to make endless phone calls or go door to door in the hopes of being lucky enough to track down help. With MyCivic Eye, the department can be on its way to solving crimes and delivering justice right away.

Package Theft

The ultimate goal of MyCivic Eye is to become a deterrent to those who would commit crimes. A prime example of this would be in the case of thieves who steal deliveries from doorsteps. Having the camera registry in place gives citizens an opportunity to help their police department while also helping themselves.


How It Works For Residents & Business Owners


Home and business owners who want to help fight crime in their neighborhood register their camera location, contact information, and their willingness to be contacted if their footage might be able to help resolve a case. No direct access is granted or enabled and all information is kept confidential.

Make Your Community Safer

When a crime occurs that may be within the view of a neighborhood camera, the Police Department may contact registrants to request access to any relevant surveillance footage captured.


Local law enforcement can only review footage if and after registrants agree. A new request must be made for each incident, granting one-time only permission. Participation always remains 100% voluntary
