The Wagoner County Sheriff’s Department has launched a program designed to help solve crimes in neighborhoods.

The Neighborhood Watch SafeCam Program is a way for the Wagoner County Sheriff's Office to work in partnership with citizens to maintain a database of camera locations that will help to identify suspects and solve crimes faster.

The program allows owners to inform the department about their security camera systems at both private residences and local businesses. It is completely voluntary, and participation is free.

“We strongly believe in the community-oriented policing philosophy and have developed this program to tackle crimes through key partnerships with our citizens,” said Wagoner County Sheriff Chris Elliott.

When a crime is reported in a particular area, the sheriff’s office will contact the owners of camera systems in the area and request a copy of their video footage.

The footage could assist investigators with developing leads in the investigation. The information provided by the owner of the camera system will not be available to the public nor will the video be subject to Open Records requests.

Citizens can register the information about their camera systems at the following link: https://wagonercountyso.org/safe-cam-program.

Those with questions should contact the Wagoner County Sheriff’s Office at 918-485-3124.
