Security Camera Registry
We believe that working with the community to expand the use of existing technologies will assist in increasing public safety in Rantoul. The Rantoul Police Department has created a private security camera registration program that is designed to deter crime and promote public safety through collaboration between the Rantoul Police Department and the residents and businesses of the Village of Rantoul.
On this website, citizens and business owners can register their EXTERNAL security camera locations, system details and submit their contact information. If a serious crime is committed in the view of a privately owned security camera, Rantoul Police Department will search the registration data for nearby cameras and may contact the owner with a request for camera footage. Having this information readily available will allow the Officers to investigate crimes more efficiently.
The registration process takes less than a minute and asks for;
• The name and address of your location
• Contact information for the owner or operator of the camera system
• Details regarding your external security camera system
To proceed to the registration portal, you can click on the following link:
If you would prefer to fill out a registration form and deliver it to us, the form can be printed from the above registration website and mailed to the Rantoul Police Department, 109 E. Grove Ave., Rantoul, IL., Attn: Security Camera Registration, or can be dropped off at the police station, Monday through Friday between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.
** AS PART OF THIS PROGRAM, AT NO TIME WILL THE RANTOUL POLICE DEPARTMENT HAVE DIRECT ACCESS TO YOUR CAMERA OR CAMERA SYSTEM **
The Rantoul Police Department will keep information provided by the registrant confidential and not disclose that information to third parties except as reasonably necessary to fulfill lawful responsibility or in accordance with law enforcement practices.
