The Crawford County Sheriff’s Office S.T.OP. (Shared Technology On Patrol) program is a Law enforcement and citizen partnership focused on crime prevention and crime solving. The S.T.O.P. initiative is aimed at deterring, apprehending, and convicting criminals by utilizing key video evidence captured by residential/business security cameras during the commission of a crime.
By partnering with the Crawford County Sheriff’s Office, community members participating in this cost-free program will have the opportunity to directly impact the safety of their neighborhoods. If a crime occurs in your neighborhood, Deputies can use S.T.O.P. to quickly identify nearby cameras that may have captured the crime in progress. A Deputy may contact a participating S.T.O.P resident or business owners in the area and inquire about availability of video footage. The Crawford County Sheriff’s Office WILL NOT be able to directly access your camera system, but rather will provide you a direct link to send files to the Sheriff’s Office.
If you would like to let us know that you have video surveillance and would allow Deputies to contact you should a crime occur in or near your area, simply complete the submission form for a business, residence, or both. Each S.T.O.P. participant will receive a S.T.O.P. yard sign as well as a S.T.O.P. window decal. The yard sign and decal will send a strong message to criminals that crime will not be tolerated in your area.
Your personal information will remain confidential and you may opt out of the program at any time. Thank you!
