The Daphne Police Department is located at 1502 US Hwy 98. The Joseph H. Hall Justice Center is named so in honor of the former chief who served as Daphne's police chief for 35 years.
Crime happens everywhere and in some way affects every citizen. Law enforcement is more successful with citizen partnerships. Property crimes, such as car break-ins, thefts from sheds or garages, and residential burglaries, make up the highest percentage of criminal activity reports in Daphne. Inexpensive home security cameras have become popular, and Daphne Police Department has been successful in solving several cases based on footage collected from the victims and their neighbors.
Collecting this footage typically requires an officer or detective to canvass a neighborhood by going door to door looking for cameras and citizens willing to help their neighbors. This is a time consuming process.
Beginning October 2019 for National Crime Prevention Month, we are asking residents with home security camera systems to register with the police department.
This program is 100% voluntary!!
We are not asking for access to the system; we simply would like to know where footage may be available in the event there is a crime on your street or in your neighborhood.
How to Partner with us:
Call the Daphne Police Department Detective Unit at 251-620-0150 and provide your name, address, and contact information. We will keep a list of possible locations for video evidence.
Should there be a crime in the area of your home, a detective will contact you and ask for you to review your system’s footage within a narrow time frame.
