Albuquerque Community Connect Camera Registry and Integration — City of Albuquerque

Register or connect your surveillance camera.

Become an Albuquerque Community Connect Partner and provide law enforcement with imagery that makes arrests easier and more effective. Detectives will use your evidence to identify and link criminals to each other and to crimes. Community Connect is a partnership between the community, the City of Albuquerque and the Bernalillo County District Attorney’s Office, the Albuquerque Police Department, the Real Time Crime Center and the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Department.

Partnering with Albuquerque Community Connect is completely free and completely voluntary.

There are two ways to participate:

  1. Card register: Add the location of your camera(s) to the registry map. If ever a crime is reported in your area, law enforcement will request footage. The cadastral map is the recommended option for residences.
  2. Real-time integration: Integrate your camera(s) with the Real Time Crime Center to provide detectives with real-time video of the crime. Real-time integration is the recommended option for enterprises.

See more details on how to pair up below. We look forward to working with you to create a safer Albuquerque.

Community Connect Card Registry

Add your camera to the map

The registry map shows law enforcement all registered private cameras where law enforcement can request video footage from the community. By providing your contact information and the location of your surveillance cameras to the registry, detectives will be able to contact you if ever a crime is reported in your area. You will be able to send images using a secure link to quickly provide detectives with valuable information. There is no direct connection to the RTCC and your images remain private unless you choose to share them with investigators. The cadastral map is the recommended option for residences.

Real-time Community Connect integration

Email us to link your camera to the RTCC

Integrating your camera connections with the RTCC saves crucial time and offers virtual patrols, providing faster and more accurate responses in your area. Without integrating your CCTV system, investigators have to spend time requesting footage. When a crime happens near you, quickly and easily forward your video to detectives and help solve crimes in your neighborhood. Real-time integration is the recommended option for enterprises.

Partner requirements for real-time integration with RTCC

Cameras:

Camera systems must be compatible with the Real Time Crime Center system. Your current camera system can be used if compatible. Additionally, simply updating your Network Video Recorder (NVR) with a compatible unit will enable integration. Installing compatible Stratocast branded cloud cameras will allow you to participate without making any changes to your existing system. Community Connect will provide assistance with installation requirements and will verify and purchase compatible equipment.

  • Companies with an existing Genetec-branded system can partner with Community Connect without additional equipment.
  • Businesses with an existing IP camera system can partner with Community Connect by replacing the NVR with a Genetec device. Email us for information on compatible systems.
  • Businesses without a surveillance system, or preferring to supplement with a compatible system, can partner with Community Connect by installing Stratocast-branded, cloud-based pan, tilt and zoom (PTZ) cameras.

High-speed Internet:

Real-time integration requires a high-speed internet connection at the camera location.

SCAN update

Albuquerque Community Connect Camera Registry replaced the SCAN Network. Current SCAN participants are encouraged to partner with the Albuquerque Community Connect camera registry, saving time and convenience by no longer needing to meet with a police officer or detective to provide footage.
