Connect St. Cloud is a new public safety initiative that allows you to help keep your St. Cloud community safe.
Your voluntary participation can greatly enhance emergency preparedness by enabling police, fire, and public safety professionals to better assess and more rapidly respond to criminal activity and emergency situations. It will also enable investigators to easily gather crucial evidence following an incident.
Community camera registry
We are building an interactive map of security cameras in St. Cloud that will:
Be accessible only to the St. Cloud Police Department
Increase the efficiency of direct video evidence collection
Provide immediate contact information to investigators for camera owners
Enable communities to work together to create a safer St. Cloud
Two ways to participate:
LEVEL 1: Register Your Cameras Let's work together to fight crime! Register your security cameras with the St. Cloud Police Department today to help identify area cameras in case of an incident. A St. Cloud Police Department investigator may contact you via email if they need your assistance solving a crime near you.
Camera registration takes less than one minute via our secure online portal. Registering your cameras does not allow the St. Cloud Police Department access to your live video stream – it only enables investigators to know a camera is present at your location and easily request video evidence should an incident occur.

LEVEL 2: Integrate Your Cameras Businesses and residents can take community security one step further by allowing the St. Cloud Police Department direct access to your camera feed in case of a nearby emergency.
All you need is a small CORE device that you plug into your camera system. Learn More
