The use of private and commercial camera systems has grown at a rapid and steady pace. In an effort to capitalize on this technology to improve public safety in the community, Maricopa County Sheriff's Office Queen Creek (MCSO QC) is pleased to announce Operation QC-Cam.
Residents and businesses in Queen Creek may voluntarily register their privately owned and maintained camera systems with MCSO QC. MCSO QC will not have direct access to the cameras, and will only contact the owner if it is believed that the camera might have captured criminal activity.
The location of these cameras will be on file with deputies and staff, who may contact the owner in the event a crime occurs in the area of their camera systems.
All registration information (names, address, etc.) will remain strictly confidential. The information is being provided to MCSO for contact purposes.
Help us keep our community safe
In many cases, privately owned camera systems have provided valuable evidence to criminal investigations, and have led to arrests that otherwise might never have been possible without the video. Evidence provided by these private camera systems might make the difference between bringing a perpetrator to justice instead of a crime going unsolved.
Public safety is a joint venture that necessitates the investment and participation of MCSO QC and the residents it is sworn to protect. Operation QC-Cam is yet another tool to help make Queen Creek a safe place to live and conduct business, and to let the criminal element know that they are being watched and are not welcome.
