Help HCSO Solve Crime with Your Home Security Cameras

July 17 2023

Did you know that your home security camera could help solve crime in Harris County?

SafeCam is one of the crime prevention and investigative tools that the Harris County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO) utilizes to demonstrate the effectiveness of partnerships between police and the community. Surveillance video recorded by cameras owned by residents and business owners across Harris County have resulted in the arrests of numerous criminals. SafeCam is your opportunity to make the neighborhood in which you live and work a safer place for the entire community.

If you have a private exterior security camera, you are eligible to participate and register your camera with SafeCam through the link below. By registering your camera, you are simply allowing the HCSO to contact you in the event of a crime in your area. The contact information you provide may be accessed by HCSO when investigating a crime in the vicinity of where your camera is located. HCSO may contact you to request a copy of any video captured by your camera system. However, the camera system is your property and you have the right to refuse any requests. HCSO will not have access to your camera system and cannot access camera footage without your consent. There is no requirement to provide footage at any time.

If you have footage that you would like to share with HCSO, please contact
