From the Morristown Police:

Public Safety Director Michael C. Corcoran Jr. and Acting Chief Darnell Richardson are pleased to announce that the Morristown Bureau of Police has just launched a new surveillance camera registration program called Virtual Crime Watch.

The goal of this program is to create a safer Morristown through partnership with our neighborhood residents and business owners. The program is entirely free of charge, voluntary, and any information gained will strictly be for the use of the Morristown Bureau of Police as we work to solve crimes in our community.

By registering your security camera system with the Morristown Police Department, it will enable our Officers and Detectives to more easily identify any camera systems that may have captured criminal activity or potential criminal suspects.

The decision to allow an Officer or Detective of the Morristown Police Department to review your footage or to provide a copy of the footage is entirely up to you.

By registering for the Virtual Crime Watch program, participants are in no way required to provide any surveillance footage. However, the information you provide has the potential to be invaluable to a criminal investigation and can help to make our community safer.

Anyone wishing to register a surveillance camera can access a simple registration form at The registration process takes only a few minutes and can be completed completely online.

Anyone who has questions about the Virtual Crime Watch program or needs assistance in registering their camera can email us at
