Community Camera Sharing Program

  • Get more from your home/business security camera system and help your community at the same time.
  • Registration for home and business security camera systems is FREE regardless of which type of camera system you have.
  • The free registration simply tells us that you have a camera system so we can contact you and request footage as needed.
  • Help solve crimes without leaving the comfort of your own home – simply share the requested footage.
  • Following your free camera registration, you may choose to upgrade your security infrastructure by purchasing a CORE device from Fusus. The CORE device will enable you to stream live video (of your choice) directly to the FCSO once it is installed on your network.
  • Camera-streaming allows our deputies to arrive at your home/business with more information about the situation, ultimately keeping you safer.

Real Time Intelligence Center (RTIC)

  • RTIC is a centralized technology center that assists in gathering, analyzing, and investigating intelligence in order to more effectively deploy resources.
  • We are the first Sheriff's Office in the state of North Carolina to have its own RTIC.
  • Multiple unique software programs work together to provide deputies with comprehensive intelligence.
  • RTIC not only aids in identifying crime patterns but also ultimately prevents crime, ensuring a safer community for all.
  • RTIC staff members are able to relay information to deputies real-time while they are responding to a call.
  • Investigators can request information from a wide network of community stakeholders.
  • The RTIC was initially funded by federal-forfeiture-dollars and not tax-dollars.
