The Placer County Sheriff’s Office (PCSO) wants your help in fighting crime by being a Sheriff’s Eagle Eye (SEE). SEE 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 officers collect video evidence and follow up on leads.
Through the program, PCSO will be able to directly contact SEE registrants who are using video in an area in which a crime occurred. Deputies would ask SEE registrants 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 that 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.
Policy: Registration in this program is voluntary and there is no cost associated with registration. Registering your information does not provide PCSO with direct access to your security system camera. You may delete your registration at any time. You will only be contacted by the Placer County Sheriff’s Office in the future if there is a criminal incident in the vicinity of your security camera. Sheriff’s personnel, if necessary, may request a copy of any video captured by your camera, which may assist in the investigation of a crime. You will provide law enforcement personnel who are investigating a crime access to the information on your security system camera.
