Community Camera Program
Do you use private video surveillance at your home or business that records video? If you do, the Oldham County Police Department would like your help.
Video camera footage is an additional method we can use to help us find criminals and get additional information when a crime is committed. The Oldham County Police Department is asking citizens and businesses in the community to register their privately-owned surveillance camera systems. When a crime happens in your area, we may be able to see something useful on your camera footage which may help apprehend/convict a criminal. You would only be contacted if there is a criminal incident in the vicinity of your camera(s) as indicated by your submitted information.
