Policy

Registration is voluntary and there is no cost associated with registration. Registering your information does not provide the Crow Wing County Sheriff’s Office with direct access to your camera. You may delete your registration at any time. All personal information will be kept confidential by Crow Wing County unless subject to disclosure by court order. Your information will be accessed by law enforcement personnel who are investigating a crime in the vicinity of where your camera is located. You will only be contacted by law enforcement personnel in the future if there is a criminal incident in the vicinity of your security camera. Law enforcement personnel, if necessary, may request a copy of any video captured by your camera, which may assist in the investigation of a crime.
