OROVILLE, Calif. - The Butte County Sheriff's Office is asking people with security cameras to participate in a voluntary registry to help fight crime.
"Surveillance [helps] identify suspects, witnesses, and timelines. Even if it captures a car driving by, it can help us piece together where people were or were not at a time," explained Lt. Jake Smith.
Smith assured the public that no private information will be accessed from registered cameras.
"Any surveillance we ask for would be a request," he said. "It would not be something we have direct access to. Everything would be owned and possessed by the actual homeowner. There's no way to tap [the footage] or retrieve it out of the air."
