Rutland City Police Department debuts body cameras


RUTLAND, Vt. (NEWS10) — The Rutland City Police Department (RCPD) has debuted body cameras for all uniformed officers. RCPD had previously used a vehicle dash-mounted video system, having each officer wear a microphone to record audio.

RCPD will be using Axon body-worn cameras (BWCs), which are both audio and video eligible. Police say the BWS devices will offer a greater ability to record police with public interactions to ensure transparency and adherence to department policy. In addition, the cameras will aid in preserving evidence in criminal cases.
