Freeborn County Wants Your Opinion On Officer Body Cameras
Would you want them? Or, wouldn't you?
Right now, the Freeborn County Sheriff's Office is planning on purchasing body cameras for their officers. While they do this, they want your opinion on the subject.
This will be the first of three meetings that the office will hold with the public. It'll also be the first opportunity to present your opinion.
The New York Times has reported that more and more police departments are using them. They explain, "By 2015, 95 percent of large police departments reported they were using body cameras or had committed to doing so in the near future, according to a national survey."
There has been no clarification by the Freeborn County Sheriff's Office as to where officers would wear their cameras yet.
