Lynnwood Community Camera Registration Program


The Lynnwood Police Department wants to collaborate with local business owners and homeowners to implement a new crime prevention program which will allow residents and business owners to help solve crime and assist in lowering incidents of criminal activity.

By registering your external business or personal camera locations, you can help police protect our community in its crime prevention efforts.  The registration process is fast and simple!



Complete the required fields on the registration form and hit "send". Your information will automatically populate the location of your cameras onto a city map that only Lynnwood police can view.

Please Note: Registering your information does not provide the Lynnwood police with direct access to your camera system. This information may be utilized by law enforcement personnel who are investigating a crime in the vicinity of where your camera is located.

The Camera Registration Program could help assist the police department to quickly identify nearby cameras that may have captured criminal activity. After registering your camera, you would only be contacted by the Lynnwood police if there was a criminal incident that occurred in proximity to your camera's field of vision. If necessary, Lynnwood police may request to view your camera footage in order to assist in the investigation. You are under no obligation to provide access to your camera footage.

  • If necessary, police personnel may request a copy of video captured by your camera, which could assist in the investigation of a crime. This is a voluntary request, you are not obligated to provide a copy or allow access.
  • Any footage containing or related to criminal activity may be collected by the Lynnwood Police Department for use as evidence during any stage of a criminal proceeding.
  • Under no circumstances shall registrants interpret that they are acting as an agent and/or employee of the City of Lynnwood or the Lynnwood Police Department.
