The Hammonton Police Department is asking local business owners for their assistance in keeping our town safe. We need your help in catching criminals and that’s why we are initiating a system called S.P.O.T. (Surveillance Protects Our Town). S.P.O.T. is a program where our businesses can register their surveillance cameras allowing us to have knowledge of their location(s). Even though we will not have access to any live and/or direct feeds, this will assist us with investigations, identifying suspects, and locating evidence. Being able to have access to these cameras would greatly help our departments mission as well protect the residents of Hammonton. Our community deserves an edge over the criminals and this is our advantage! Let’s keep Hammonton safe!
Interested local business owners can print the registry form from the Hammonton Police Department’s website (see link above). Completed forms need to ether hand delivered to the Hammonton Police Department, second floor police records room or mailed directly to: The Hammonton Police Department, 100 Central Avenue, Hammonton, NJ, 08037. Upon completion, the business owner will be issued their S.P.O.T. decal (as pictured above). If your registry form was submitted via mail, we will personally deliver your decal to your business. Once you are in possession of your decal, please be sure to place it in plain sight on your front window or door so that the public knows that you are registered with the S.P.O.T. program.
Thank you in advance for your support.
