Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My Chevrolet Express Cargo Van for my Work is
being vandalized, I have purchased a dash camera
system which can also act as a parking monitor and
record video when the vehicle is parked.

I'm order for the camera System to know that the
vehicle is parked, it determines that from the
ignition switch not having power. My Chevy Express
has continuous power at the cigarette lighter
receptical, (its hard wired),

Can the cigarette lighter in my 2008 Chevrolet
Express Cargo Van be rewired to only have power
when the ignition switch is on?
