BEDFORD CITIZEN OBSERVATION PROGRAM
Do you have a home or business security camera system?
Do you want to help your local police department solve crimes
in your neighborhood?
Then join the Bedford Police Department’s Citizen Observation
Program.
What is BCOP?
It is a voluntary program designed to utilize privately owned
home and business security cameras that could contain video
evidence in the area of a recent crime. Video is a very important
part in helping to identify the criminal, which might lead to
arrest and conviction. By taking part in this program you take
ownership in the crime fighting process and help make Bedford
a safer place to live.
Who is the Bedford Police Department asking to participate
in the program?
Homeowners and Businesses in the City of Bedford who have
security camera systems that record and retain activity around
their home or business premises.
How do you participate in the program?
Registration, via the form found in this flyer, is all that is needed
to initially participate in the program. The registration form can
be in two places.
A. The form within this flyer
or
B. www.bedfordpolice.com
How does the program work after registering your security
camera system?
If a crime occurs in your neighborhood or near your business, an
Officer will research our database of registered security camera
systems to locate any members of the program that are in the
area of the criminal offense. The Officer will contact the
member(s) to see if their camera systems have captured any
video footage that may assist in the Police Department’s
investigation. If the member has captured any video footage
that may assist in the investigation, the Officer will ask the
member to provide a copy of just the footage of the incident
requested. The copy of the footage will be entered into Police
evidence to aid in prosecution of the crime that occurred.
Does the program give the Bedford Police Department
access to the security camera system?
No, the Bedford Police Department will not have access to the
security camera system at any time.
Is participation in the program mandatory?
This program is strictly voluntary and the participants may
withdraw from the program at any time by providing written
notice to the Bedford Police Department Community Services
Division at 817-952-2444.
Information provided is for Official Use Only. The information will
