Originally published as a Lake County Sheriff’s Office press release –
The Lake County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO) wants your help in fighting crime. The Camera Registration Program allows residents and business owners to register the locations of their video surveillance systems with the Sheriff’s Office.
When a crime occurs, Deputies will be able to identify the locations of nearby video cameras and enlist the assistance of the community to help deputies collect video evidence and follow up on leads.
Through the program, LCSO will be able to directly contact participants who are using video in an area in which a crime occurred.
Deputies would ask participants to check their video surveillance system for a specific date and time for video that may show activity involved with a crime, such as a getaway car or the direction a person of interest was headed. If any video evidence is found, the resident or business owner can make arrangements with Deputies for video retrieval.
Please answer the following questions to register your surveillance camera with the Lake County Sheriff’s Office.
