Help Keep
Cleveland Safe


Integrated Cameras

Safe Smart CLE, a camera sharing access program, is a new public safety program enabling the people of Cleveland to help keep their community safe.

Your participation will greatly enhance emergency preparedness by enabling police, fire, EMS, and public safety personnel to better assess and rapidly respond to criminal activity and emergency situations. It will also enable investigators to easily gather evidence in case of an incident.

LEVEL 1: Register Your Cameras

Let's work together to fight crime! Register your security cameras with Safe Smart CLE today to help identify area cameras in case of an incident. An investigator from the City of Cleveland, Department of Public Safety will contact you via email if they need your assistance solving a crime near you.

Camera registration takes less than one minute via our secure online portal. Registering your cameras does not allow the City of Cleveland, Department of Public Safety access to your live video stream - it only enables investigators to know a camera is present at your location and easily request video evidence should an incident occur.

LEVEL 2: Integrate Your Cameras

Businesses and residents can take community security one step further by giving the City of Cleveland, Department of Public Safety direct access to your camera feed in case of a nearby emergency.

All you need is a small CORE device that you plug into your camera system.

Please complete Level 1 (Camera Registry) before proceeding to Level 2 (Camera Integration). If you have previously registered your security cameras, please go directly to Step 2 to purchase CORE devices.
