Racine Police Department
The City of Racine has established a Business and Commercial Security Camera System Pilot Program designed to assist with the purchase of a “security camera system” (an approved security camera and subscription for cloud-based video storage for up to one year) at businesses and commercial properties within the City of Racine. The reimbursement is only available to the owners of the property where the security system is installed or to a business at the business location with written approval of the business property owner.
The Business and Commercial Security Camera System Pilot Program features a reimbursement of $250 per business or commercial property owner. The reimbursement will be paid to property owners, or to a business owner with property owner’s written consent, based on the actual costs for the purchase of a security camera system or the reimbursement amount, whichever is less.
Reimbursements will be issued on a first come first served basis upon receipt and approval of the application. Reimbursement will not happen until all program requirements are met. Applications will be accepted for the duration of the program or until funding runs out, whichever comes first.
The business/property must be free of building code violations or tax liens.
Police will not have continuous access to video footage from the security camera system. Permission must be given by Applicant for police to access video footage. The police department may request video footage from the security camera system if they have reason to believe the Applicant has footage of a crime. Applicant is expected to contact the Racine Police Department if there is a crime that they may have footage of and offer their video to the police.
All documents may be submitted in person at the Racine Police Department or by email to CCP@cityofracine.org.
