SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Sacramento County authorities are asking residents and business owners to provide video surveillance footage to law enforcement investigators.

The Sacramento Bee reports officials are asking property owners with surveillance cameras to sign up for the Sheriff's Electronic Eye registry.

The new voluntary program would alert law enforcement agencies when there are any privately owned surveillance cameras in areas of interest to investigators.

Law enforcement officials would not get access to live surveillance feeds or a camera's archived footage. They could only get footage with the owner's consent.

Sheriff Scott Jones says investigators previously had to physically search an area looking for cameras or put out a plea to the public. He says the new program could be especially helpful in child-abduction or missing-person cases.
