The goal of the Yakima PD SafeCam program is to deter crime and promote public safety through collaboration between the Yakima Police Department and the community we serve. Accordingly, all camera registrants agree to the following terms and conditions: Registration is entirely voluntary.
The Yakima Police Department will not post your personal information online. By registering your security camera with the Yakima Police Department, however, you understand that your personal information may be disclosed in response to a request made under Washington’s Public Records laws or under a lawfully issued subpoena. If there is a crime, an incident or a disturbance, in your neighborhood, Yakima PD will look for security cameras that potentially have captured evidence of the activity. The Yakima Police Department may contact you and request access to the camera to view the footage. You may always deny a request to view your camera or footage. However, a warrant may be requested to obtain this information. If there is evidence of a crime or law violation or other incident on your camera footage, you may potentially be called as a witness in the case.
