Camera Canvas Program

The Camera Canvas Program was implemented in 2021 to help thwart criminal activity and solve crime in Tahlequah. Since many residents currently operate surveillance systems at their homes, the police department's goal is to create a safer community together. As crimes occur nearby, they are not always aware that their surveillance system may have captured the information that could help solve the crime, thus keeping our community safer. 

The program is intended to let officers know where cameras are active in the city in case a crime occurs. 

As police respond to criminal incidents, they may be able to use the information or footage gathered from the security cameras to assist in the apprehension and prosecution of the criminals involved. The Tahlequah Police Department is asking residents to register their privately owned surveillance camera systems through Camera Canvas.
