OEMC’s Private Sector Camera Initiative

Alderman Reilly is pleased to announce that the Office of Emergency Management and Communications (OEMC) has launched its “Private Sector Camera Initiative.”

OEMC provides citizens of Chicago with prompt and reliable 9-1-1 service for police, fire and emergency medical services, and coordinates major emergency response.

The program aims to link private sector camera systems with OEMC’s state-of-the-art video surveillance network. OEMC is seeking to gain access to exterior cameras on the public way, and camera feeds will only be viewed during emergency situations and active criminal investigations.

Alderman Reilly strongly encourages condominium associations, rental buildings, and local businesses to participate in the “Private Sector Camera Initiative.” The program will help the Chicago Police Department (CPD) to make arrests in real-time and deter criminal activity.

Please contact OEMC at (312) 746-9111 if you would like to  participate in this public safety initiative. For more information, click on the following links to download the Private Sector Camera Brochure  and visit OEMC’s website

Alderman Reilly is committed to advocating for new methods that enhance public safety in your neighborhood and will continue to fight for more resources that help supplement the Chicago Police Department’s good work.
