Flagler County Sheriff’s Office Announces ‘Silent Guardians’ Program

The Sheriff’s Office will not monitor this security footage but will contact the home or business owner in the event a crime occurs in their area and ask to review potentially helpful security footage.

When a crime occurs, the FCSO often seeks out anyone with a camera system near the incident or along a path of escape to assist if they are willing to share that video. The Silent Guardians program is a very simple enhancement to that technique and will essentially be a database of surveillance cameras owned and operated by businesses, homeowners and renters throughout Flagler County.

The Sheriff’s Office will not monitor this security footage but will contact the home or business owner in the event a crime occurs in their area and ask to review potentially helpful security footage.

Joining the Silent Guardians is very easy to do and only requires that you fill out an online form letting the FCSO know where your camera is located, what street/cross-streets your camera views, and how to contact you in case a crime near you occurs.

Joining the Silent Guardians program does not give FCSO access to your surveillance footage. Joining simply tells FCSO that you may have footage that might be helpful during an investigation.

“Quick access to surveillance footage solves crimes,” Sheriff Rick Staly said. “People install these cameras to protect their businesses, their homes and their families. By working together we can continue to solve crimes quickly and keep crime low in Flagler County.”

Since his election in 2017, Sheriff Staly has implemented Guardianship policing and numerous programs designed to encourage Flagler County residents and business owners to become more involved in preventing, and potentially solving, crimes within their own communities.
