Citizen-Provided Security Camera Program


Sumter County Sheriff’s Office  enlists the help of community members in the fight against crime through the use of citizen-provided security camera footage.

Citizen-provided security footage is a vital asset to law enforcement in helping to establish leads and identify suspects. Evidence provided by citizen cameras could mean the difference between bringing a perpetrator to justice versus leaving a crime unsolved.

By voluntarily registering with your contact information, investigators will know how to reach you if a crime occurs in close proximity to your home or business that uses a security camera. The sheriff's office will only contact participants if we think your camera system could contain evidence relevant to a criminal investigation.

If you would like to participate, fill out this form and email it to communitywatch@sumtercountysc.org.
