The mission of the Newport Police Department is to consistently invest available resources toward our City's reputation as a safe place to live, work, play, learn, and visit. This will be accomplished by complying with professional standards established by the Oath of Office, Professional Code of Ethics, and administrative directives. We will perform in a manner that promotes the public's trust, confidence, and sense of safety and security.
The program allows residents and businesses to register the locations of their exterior video surveillance systems with the Newport Police Department so that when a crime occurs, police will be able to identify the locations of nearby video cameras easily and efficiently.
