Community Video Partnership

Community Video Partner camera graphicVideo cameras are a tremendous tool for detecting, identifying and apprehending criminals. Our Community Video Partnership Program invites Lenexa residents and businesses to work with us to create a secure, confidential map of security cameras and video doorbells across the City. 

You can register your security camera and/or video doorbell that views any public area in Lenexa such as sidewalks, streets and parking lots. If a crime occurs, we may contact registrants in that specific area to see if footage was captured that is helpful to our investigation. We would then use that information to apprehend and prosecute the criminals involved.

Registration is completely voluntary and registrants can opt out at any time. 

Register your cameras

There is no fee to register your camera, and we will keep your information confidential. You can register your security cameras / video doorbells two ways:

  • By mail – Print our PDF form and mail it to:

Lenexa Police Department

12500 W. 87th St. Pkwy.

Lenexa, KS 66215

We will follow up with you upon receipt of your registration. If you like, we will provide you with a Community Video Partnership window decal to help deter criminal activity at your home or business.

You may unsubscribe from the program at any time.

Privacy concerns

This program is not intended for active surveillance, nor does it provide us direct camera access to your system. Registering simply lets us know which locations have video surveillance in the area.

We may request to see or make copies of footage related to criminal activity and to use for evidence during criminal proceedings. 

All registry information is only available to our police department for the purposes of investigating a criminal matter. Any information shared with the Department will be strictly confidential. Having this information will allow us to locate potential evidentiary video and contact the homeowner or business for a copy in a quick and efficient manner. 

Live feed program

We are also looking for partners to join a separate program that provides us access to real-time video camera feeds of public areas at your business. A live feed can provide us with crucial information if a dangerous emergency occurs, such as a hostage situation or active shooter event.
