Audio & Video Recording Systems
The Department implemented the use of body worn camera and in-car camera systems in March 2019 to help us accomplish several objectives:
- Help provide accurate documentation of police-public contacts, arrests and critical incident responses
- Enhance the accuracy of officer reports and testimony in court
- Document crime and accident scenes and other events
- Enhance evaluation of police conduct and professionalism
