Home & Business Protection Program LogoThere were two ways for people to obtain private security devices through the Home and Business Protection Program:

HBPP Rebate Application

The HBPP rebate application closed on Sunday, April 2 at 11:00 pm CST. All pending applications submitted on or prior to April 2 will be processed and eligible applicants will receive reimbursement.

HBPP Income-Based Application

The HBPP income-based application closed on Thursday, May 4th at 11pm CST. All pending applications submitted on or prior to May 4 will be reviewed and applicants will be notified of the status of their application.

Optional Camera Registration with CPD

Applicants who are interested in aiding the Chicago Police Department (CPD) during criminal investigations have the  option  to register their camera system at chicagopolice.org/cameraregistration.

Registration of the camera system location with CPD is NOT required to obtain devices through the City's Home and Business Protection Program.

For residents who decide to register their cameras, CPD will not have direct access to the camera system and cannot access camera footage without consent. By registering, residents simply allow CPD to request camera footage in the event of a crime. Residents reserve the right to refuse access to camera footage at all times.
