- About Us
The SafeWatch program is a surveillance camera initiative implemented by the Springfield Township Police Department. Many residents and businesses have already taken extra security measures to monitor their homes and property by installing outdoor security cameras. The Police Department is looking for residents and business owners who are willing to share video from these cameras in the event it captures anything of investigative significance.
Security camera footage is a valuable tool when investigating criminal activity. In this community policing effort, participants in the SafeWatch program will play a crucial role in assisting officers to quickly determine if video footage is available near a crime scene. This footage can capture images of crimes in progress, people involved in suspicious activity, provide detailed suspect information, and can sometimes help track the direction of travel of criminal entering or leaving a neighborhood.
Registration in the Safe Watch program can be done by completing and mailing this form, or on-line. The program is completely voluntary and participants can withdraw at any time. All information will be for official use only. Your personal information will remain confidential and will not be used for public dissemination. Participants will also receive a window decal for their home or business which may help serve as an additional deterrent to criminals. If you have additional questions or concerns about the program, please contact the Detective Unit at 215-836-1606.
