When people register their cameras, they will receive a sticker that they can place in the windows of their home or business to let people know that their cameras are registered with the Lafayette Police Department. This sticker may deter potential criminal activity at the specific location.
Anyone interested in registering their surveillance camera can do so at https://cityprotect.com/camera-registration.
The following describes a little more on the program from CrimeReports.com:
The CrimeReports Camera Registration program is a great way to help deter and solve crime quickly in your community. Providing your local law enforcement agency with the location of your security camera empowers them with the information needed to catch criminals faster. And since you own the camera, your participation always remains 100% voluntary.
