Businesses and Citizens can also Voluntarily share live security camera feeds from their businesses or outside their homes
Sentinel is a voluntary partnership, primarily between businesses and possibly citizens if they wish, with a participating partner, Flock Safety Inc. This partnership, if agreed upon by the involved parties, would allow restricted access to live video feeds during a reported emergency. Additional information about the program can be found HERE.
The Spokane County Sheriff's Office uses Flock Safety technology to capture objective evidence without compromising individual privacy. Spokane County Sheriff’s Office utilizes retroactive searches to solve crimes after they've occurred. Additionally, the Sheriff’s Office uses real-time alerting of hotlist vehicles to capture wanted criminals. In an effort to ensure proper usage and guardrails are in place, they have made the policies and usage statistics available to the public.
