[ARCHIVED] Help our Deputies/Investigators Hold Criminals Accountable while Keeping Your Neighborhood Safe


Help our Deputies/Investigators Hold Criminals Accountable while Keeping Your Neighborhood Safe 

If you have a home or business surveillance system, we would like you to join our VIP (Video Identification Program) program.   This is a voluntary program, and we are only asking for locations of security systems that may help investigators quickly find video footage if a crime occurred in your area.  We are NOT asking for access to your system.  


What is it?  The VIP program lets us know where video footage might be found in the event a significant incident or crime occurred in the area.  With this information, investigators would know the potential locations where video evidence of the actual incident, or a suspect/vehicle entering or leaving the area where the crime occurred, might be found.  This type of evidence and the ability to obtain it quickly is invaluable.           
 Are you asking for access to remotely access my surveillance system?   
No, not at all.  We merely ask you to let us know that you have a system and what direction/area it may have recorded.  Investigators can then easily access a map of surveillance cameras locations in the area where a crime was committed, including possible routes taken by the suspect(s) as they arrived or fled the scene.   In addition, they would have your contact information allowing them to contact locations that may have this valuable evidence recorded.


How do I join?  It’s easy.   Go to our website (www.spokanesheriff.org), click on the VIP icon, and provide your information.  You can also copy and paste this direct link into your internet browser https://survey123.arcgis.com/share/4405709204ca4dce877e163bb26fece6      


Thank you for your continued support and your willingness to help us keep our community safe.  


Spokane County Sheriff’s Office and Spokane Valley Police would like to join with you to potentially solve crimes or locate evidence of crimes faster and more effectively.  We are asking business and private residences to advise us if they have recorded surveillance systems and whom we would contact if a significant incident occurred in their area.
