Project IRIS Camera Registry

CCTV Camera

Help speed up evidence gathering by police by voluntarily registering the location of your CCTV camera.

Project IRIS (Integrated Resources for Investigations and Safety) is a camera registry. The registry will record the location of cameras owned by businesses and residents in Surrey. This video camera registry initiative is a partnership between the City of Surrey, Surrey RCMP, businesses, and the community and is part of the Public Safety Strategy.

Register your camera now

Often evidence can be recorded by a nearby CCTV camera. If an incident occurs, City staff can rapidly identify camera owners in the area.  RCMP officers will then contact the registered camera owners to request access to recorded video footage. This helps speed up investigations instead of RCMP officers going door-to-door to request footage.  Registering is voluntary, secure and easy to do.  You will only be contacted if there is an incident in your area and you are not obligated to share your camera footage with RCMP. You can decide at any time to withdraw and have your contact information taken off the registry.

Your footage could help gather evidence for an investigation. All it takes is 5 minutes to register your addresses that have security cameras. It is a secure, easy and voluntarily. Play your part in making the community safe for everyone.

How we’ll measure success

  • Increase in the number of RCMP cases using CCTV footage obtained from the cameras in the registry
  • Decrease in time taken to identify CCTV resources
  • Increase in the number of cameras identified in registry
