PHILLIPSBURG, NJ (Warren County) – The Phillipsburg Police Department is asking residents and businesses of Phillipsburg and Alpha Borough to opt-in to register their surveillance systems.
This program is completely voluntary, and you may rescind your participation at any time. We are implementing this program to foster a closer working relationship with the residents of Phillipsburg and Alpha with your police department. No fees are associated with this program, and your participation is voluntary and confidential, police said.
Registering your information does not provide the Phillipsburg Police Department with direct access to your camera system, and you may delete your registration at any time, police said.
“The police department will keep your personal information confidential unless subject to disclosure by a court order. Your information, with your permission, will be accessed by law enforcement personnel investigating a crime in the vicinity of your camera’s location,” police said.
You will only be contacted by the Phillipsburg Police Department in the future if there is a criminal incident in the vicinity of your security camera, police said.
Police personnel, if necessary, may request a copy of any video captured by your camera, which may assist them in investigating a crime or criminal activity, police said.
This program aims to deter crime and promote public safety through collaboration between the Phillipsburg Police Department and the communities we serve.
