The Daily Freeman reports that Dutchess County sheriff’s deputies started wearing body-worn cameras last week, Sheriff Kirk Imperati announced on March 17. Imperati, in a press release, said, “The cameras have been provided to sworn members of the Sheriff’s Office in order to provide greater transparency, build community trust, and further honor the commitment to our Police Reform and Modernization Plan.” Police said the cameras record audio and video when officers respond to incidents or take “official action, including but not limited to using force and making arrests.” Imperati also said, “The cameras are expected to be of significant overall benefit to both the deputies and the public that they serve as we move forward and get better together.” Read the full story in the Daily Freeman.
