Body Cameras On Some Riley County Police

Associated Press - October 22, 2014 8:09 am

Riley County police are moving forward with a pilot program to place body cameras on some officers.

Capt. Tim Hegarty announced this week that police will start testing the 11 cameras on Nov. 5. He says Aggieville police officers will wear the cameras on their heads and will activate them manually. The officers will upload the footage at the end of every shift.

The department has paid nearly $6,000 to use the cameras for five years.

Hegarty says if the pilot succeeds, the body cameras could replace dash cameras on patrol cars. He says the pilot will be evaluated after a year.
