Huntington Council Approves Cameras for Police Cruisers
The cameras which can be activated at an officers discretion would automatically start recording anytime the red light goes on, automatically during sharp car breaking and automatically at a speed threshold. Front line and traffic departments would receive a camera. Others may be added in the future, Holbrook explained.
Councilman Scott Caserta praised the police department as already having “the best officers in the state, best chief in the State of West Virginia , and , now , the best equipped bar none.”
Holbrook later explained that the presence of in cruiser cameras will cut police liability issues by holding accountable officers and those with whom they make contact. The evidence recorded by the camera cards and the audio component likely will reduce the numbers of civil rights, excessive force, and false arrest claims.
Funding for the $157,119 contract by Watch Guard Video comes for forfeiture monies , a state grant and the Huntington Police Foundation.
