    I want cameras at my house, but I've heard that this is a red flag for cops to suspect you of dealing drugs. And although I am not doing anything illegal, a no-knock warrant complete with flash bangs doesn't appeal to me even if they find nothing illegal.

    For years I was in the car wash business, my last one had 15 security cams including 2 tag cams, and I can say without hesitation that they can be worth their weight in gold, and give peace of mind.

    Question is, do I tell the local chief what I am doing and why? Do cameras at a house (exterior) create suspicions of PD?

    Can't speak for everyone with a badge, but I for one sure don't see it that way.

    Might try posting this in Cop Talk, for a broader range of opinion from LEOs all over the country.

    best,
    Mas

    Mas, you are correct. This topic is best discussed in Cop Talk.
