The program, private security camera incentive program, administered by the Office of Victim Services and Justice Grants, was instituted with the intent to help deter crime and assist law enforcement with investigations. Residents, businesses, nonprofits, and religious institutions may receive rebates to purchase external security cameras. 


The external security cameras installed on the exterior of the property must be registered with the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD). Residential addresses (e.g., home offices, condo buildings, and apartments) may receive rebates of up to $200 per camera, with a maximum rebate of up to $500 per address, while businesses, nonprofits, and religious institutions addresses may receive up to $750 per address. The rebate only covers the cost of the camera(s).
