A KCPD/Community Partnership

WatchKC Partnership

Welcome to the Kansas City Missouri, Police Department’s registration page for WatchKC. The KCPD takes a proactive and innovative approach to deterring and investigating crime. If you want to help KCPD in this proactive approach, you could play a major part in the identification of suspects and evidence of crimes.

If you or your business owns a surveillance camera you can be part of the solution to crime in our city.

Similar programs have been implemented by other agencies across the nation with great success. The registration process is simple, and available to any home or business located in Kansas City, Missouri.

Here’s how it works

Video Surveillance is a great crime deterrent and offers investigative leads in the event a crime does occur. Many homes and businesses have surveillance cameras installed. Often times the surveillance system might catch something useful when KCPD is investigating crimes. However, it may go unnoticed if the owner is unaware of the crime.

Once registered with WatchKC, camera locations will be mapped for detectives and officers to easily see. In the event of a crime nearby they can then contact registrants to see if any possible evidence was captured. Someone from KCPD will then arrange to obtain the footage at a time that is convenient for you. KCPD would never have access to footage without your knowledge. Participation is 100% voluntary and you can opt out at any time.
