The Alachua County Sheriff’s Office wants you to join our crime fighting team by joining our Sheriff’s Electronic Eye (S.E.E.) Camera Registry Program. The S.E.E. Program allows citizens and business owners to register the locations of their video surveillance systems with the Sheriff’s Office. When a crime occurs, the Sheriff’s Office will be able to identify the locations of video surveillance systems and enlist the assistance of citizens to help us collect video evidence.
Using the geographic locations of the registered cameras, the Sheriff’s Office will be able to directly e-mail citizens in an area in which a crime occurred. A common e-mail may ask the citizen to check their video surveillance system for a specific date and time for video capturing a suspect, getaway car or a crime. If the citizen finds any video evidence, they can contact the Sheriff’s S.E.E. Program to make arrangements for video retrieval.
Citizens and business owners who register with the S.E.E. Program will receive a window sticker to show they are participating in the program.
The CrimeReports Camera Registration program is a great way to help deter and solve crime quickly in your community. Providing your local law enforcement agency with the location of your security camera empowers them with the information needed to catch criminals faster. And since you own the camera, your participation always remains 100% voluntary. Additionally, some agencies provide participants with window decals and other promotional materials that advertise your participation. So, while your cameras can solve crime, your participation can prevent it altogether.
