Give this address name to help identify it.
- By voluntarily agreeing to participate in the CAMSafe program, you agree to provide only your name, address, and the location of your security and/or doorbell camera. You also agree that this information only may be made available to participating police forces, and may be accessed through an interactive mapping tool, as long as you continue to voluntarily participate in the CAMSafe program.
- Information voluntarily provided to CAMSafe will be kept in a database maintained by the Police and made available only to participating police forces through an interactive on-line mapping tool. Information provided to CAMSafe (limited to your name, address, and location of your camera) will be treated as confidential. Police will not disclose any to anyone unless compelled to do so by law. Information provided to CAMSafe is protected by legislation that prevents disclosure to third parties with some limited exceptions, including the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (Ontario), the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (Ontario), and the Personal Information and Protection of Electronic Documents Act (Federal).
- Police will not use information provided to CAMSafe or any CAMSafe tools (such as the interactive on-line map) for purposes unrelated to CAMSafe. Use of the information by Police is only for the purposes of determining the location of private cameras which may assist in the investigation of an offence. All participating police will agree to these terms as a condition of participating in the CAMSafe program, and accessing CAMSafe tools.
- You may withdraw your participation in CAMSafe at any time and your name, address, and location of your camera(s) voluntarily provided to CAMSafe will be deleted from the CAMSafe database and removed from the interactive on-line mapping tool.
- Voluntary participation in the CAMSafe program does not mean you are agreeing to share your video or any information other than your name, address, and location of your security and/or doorbell camera with anyone, including police. However, participants should be aware that participation in CAMSafe does not mean that you will never be required to provide evidence for reasons unrelated to the CAMSafe program (for example, if a Court orders you to disclose evidence in your possession).
- If participating police determine through the use of CAMSafe tools that your camera may provide evidence related to the investigation of an offence, police may ask you to voluntarily provide your footage/recordings. In limited cases where video recordings provided voluntarily may assist in the conviction of an offence, participating police may also request that you voluntarily provide a statement to verify details such as the date any provided recordings were taken or provide evidence in Court. Your voluntary participation in the CAMSafe program does not require you to agree to any police request in advance.
- Voluntary participants in the CAMSafe program are advised to ensure that their security and doorbell cameras record only their own property or other public spaces, and do not record private spaces in which persons would have a reasonable expectation of privacy.
