Body Cameras

Members of the Westville Police Department wear body cameras on the front of their police vest.  If you have any questions about the use of cameras, please contact Chief William Whinna.

Voluntary Camera Registration

The Borough of Westville Police Department is implementing a voluntary business and residential camera registration project.  This project encourages the community to register their home or business surveillance cameras with the Police Department in an effect to easily locate a crime that may have been captured by one.

Why Register
Deter Criminals….having continuous surveillance that police can use to locate crimes is an invaluable tool that only helps to deter criminals.

Assist Police…the registration information collected through this program will allow for investigators and officers to know locations of cameras so they can have a point of contact to retrieve crime related videos.

Protect Your Community…by registering a camera, you are helping to protect both your community and neighborhood by providing invaluable information that will likely solve and reduce crime.

An individual’s personal information will be kept confidential by the Borough of Westville unless subject to disclosure by court order.  Your information will only be accessed by law enforcement personnel who are investigating a crime in the vicinity of where your camera is located.  Police personnel, if necessary, may request a copy of any video captured by your camera, which may assist in the investigation of a crime.

If you are interested in participating in this program, please complete the Camera Registration Form. If you have any questions about this project, contact Lt. Packer at 856-456-9444, extension 302 or send an email.
