Report a Stolen Camera or Equipment

Equipment theft is an unfortunate reality for filmmakers. While RED does not get directly involved with the recovery of stolen equipment, we can mark your equipment as STOLEN in our internal systems to prevent future service or support. In order to mark your equipment STOLEN, we'll require a police report.

In addition to filing a police report, we recommend reporting the stolen equipment through Rental Guard. This is an online collaboration used by Rental Houses, Production Companies, Insurance Companies and Law Enforcement to document stolen equipment.

In the past, RED has also worked closely with Production Security Alliance to assist in recovering stolen equipment. They can be reached at When reaching out, please inform them that RED has instructed you to contact them.

After reporting your stolen equipment to the authorities listed above, please contact RED Customer Service with a list of your serial numbers so we can mark them as STOLEN in our internal systems.
