Shepherds Watch is one of the Somerset Police Department’s contemporary crime prevention and investigation tools that demonstrates the effectiveness of partnerships between police and the community.

Enrolling your camera not only helps deter crime, but assists the Department in its overall crime prevention strategy in your neighborhood.

Enrolling is simple and only takes about 10 minutes to complete the steps. You will provide basic information and tell us where your cameras are located. There is no cost associated with enrolling and is completely voluntary.

We will NOT have remote access to your cameras and your participation may be deleted at any time by request.


Once you have completed the enrollment form and verification process, a member of the Department will follow up with you to confirm your enrollment. At this point, you will also receive a SPD Shepherds Watch window decal which you may proudly display in your home or business.

Call of Duty

You will only be contacted by the Somerset Police Department in the future if there is a criminal incident in the vicinity of your security camera. Police personnel, if necessary, may request a copy of any video captured by your camera, which may assist in the investigation of a crime.
