LARGO, MD –  The Alsobrooks Administration is proud to announce the launch of the Private Security Camera Incentive Program, aimed at enhancing community safety by increasing the number of security cameras in priority areas across the County including Langley Park, Glassmanor, and Walker Mill.

Recognizing the effectiveness of private security camera rebate programs in helping to address crime challenges, the County is taking proactive steps to further safeguard its residents.

County Executive Alsobrooks, in collaboration with the County Council, the Prince George’s County Police Department, and the Office of Community Relations, spearheaded the creation of the Private Security Camera Incentive Program. This innovative program offers rebates for the installation of security camera systems on properties owned or leased by residents, non-profit organizations, and businesses.

"We are committed to reducing crime and promoting equity throughout Prince George’s County," said County Executive Alsobrooks. "This program builds on our track record of success in fighting crime and empowers residents and businesses to actively participate in enhancing community safety."

Studies have shown that additional security cameras can significantly deter criminal activity. Under this program, eligible applicants can receive a $200 rebate for the installation of a security camera system, covering one camera for residents and two cameras for businesses. Additionally, $100 is available to offset subscription costs

To qualify for the program, properties must be located within priority areas, and camera systems must be registered with the Prince George’s County Police Department. Applicants are required to provide proof of purchase and installation of the security camera system.

"Our application process is designed to be simple and efficient, ensuring that residents and businesses can easily participate in the program," stated Euniesha Davis, Director of the Office of Community Relations. "With an application review period of 45-90 days, we aim to expedite the process and provide timely assistance to our community."
