The Ventura County Sheriff’s Office is committed to our ongoing partnership with residents and business owners in preventing and solving crime. As technology, video surveillance has become one of the best methods for identifying, apprehending and convicting criminals. Utilizing the surveillance systems that many residents and business owners currently operate at their homes and/or businesses is a great example of how the community and law enforcement can further partner in an effort to keep our neighborhoods safer. As crimes occur nearby, residents and business owners may not always be aware that their surveillance system may have captured information that could help solve the crime. In turn, law enforcement is not always aware who may have this potentially vital information.
The Ventura County Sheriff’s Office has established a secure database to log information about who has surveillance systems. When a, authorities can quickly search the database and determine where cameras are located so these camera owners can be contacted to help solve a crime.
If you would like to register your video surveillance information and allow authorities to contact you, should a crime occur in/or near where your cameras are installed, we kindly ask that you email the police agency within your jurisdiction at the below listed email addresses. Please include your homeowner or business name, address, primary contact information, phone number and email address. The registration is only available to those cities and unincorporated areas with police services provided by the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office. These cities include Thousand Oaks, Camarillo, Ojai, Fillmore, Moorpark and the unincorporated areas of Ventura County. If you reside outside the jurisdiction of any of these cities, you can contact your local police department to see if they have a similar program.
