DUBUQUE, Iowa – The Dubuque Police Department has launched Secure Dubuque, a community partnership program that encourages residents to register their home surveillance system with the police department. In the event a crime occurs in the area, footage from the system could be of assistance to the department, increasing the efficiency of the investigation. Personal surveillance systems can include security cameras and doorbell cameras.
After registering a system, the resident’s contact information and system details are added
to a database maintained by the police department. The police department does not have direct access to any video recordings.
Information contained within the registration database is not available to the public. If criminal activity occurs in the area, the police department will assess if a residential surveillance system may have picked something up on video, and may contact the resident for assistance. Residents reserve the right to decline access to their system at any time.
For additional information and to register a system, visit www.cityofdubuque.org/securedubuque
or call the Dubuque Police Department at 563-589-4410.
