The Commerce Dept. SafeCam Program is designed to encourage businesses within neighborhood commercial corridors and industrial districts to install exterior video surveillance cameras. This is part of an overall strategy to create a safe and secure environment for company staff, service providers, customers and the local communities.
The focus is to assist with some of the costs to install a security system that monitors the outside of buildings and adjacent public space. The Program reimburses the owners of the business properties, 50% of eligible costs up to a maximum of $3,000.
The digital security camera system must have the ability to be accessed remotely by the Philadelphia Police Dept.
