Body And Car Cameras Are A Real Possibility For Many Local Law Enforcement Agencies

Posted: Updated:

KHQ spoke with many local law enforcement agencies about the possibility of adding body or car cameras. Many of them have already done that, while some are still testing the products and others have them on order. Spokane County Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich told us that body or car cameras allow individual departments to get a second look at certain scenes. He said they also allow them to identify good police work, and if needed, praise or discipline the officer depending on how the situation was handled.

Currently, Idaho State Police and the Kootenai County Sheriff's Office have dash cameras. As far as body cameras go, the Spokane County Sheriff's Office is testing them out right now. The Spokane Police Department have them on order, and the Liberty Lake Police Department hopes to join SPD by adding them to their force in 2014.

Grant County has eight body cameras and the Sheriff he told us he is hopeful that they will add 8-10 more in the next year. Coeur d' Alene Police have body and car cameras for all of its staff. Airway Heights Police have body cameras for all of its deputies. Kootenai County Sheriff's Office has a camera for most of their team, but they hope to give everyone a camera very soon.
