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."

Windy with high fire danger today. Winds calm down tomorrow with mild temperatures and sunny skies all week. By next we cool down and even have the chance for rain.
