What is the SafeCam program?

The SafeCam program was launched in December 2021 by the Edina Police Department. It is a 100 percent voluntary, opt-in initiative that allows residents and businesses to register the location of their private video surveillance systems with the department. This allows officers to contact them should a crime occur in or near where the camera is installed. Opting in to the SafeCam program does not give Edina Police access to video footage until granted by the home or business owner. Interested property owners can register here.
