How do you believe a body camera program will benefit your officers, department as a whole and the community?
Chief Kain: Body Cameras protect law enforcement officers if we ever have to use deadly force the body cameras will protect our officers by capturing video evidence. Body cameras also protect the community because studies show that use of force goes down when body cameras are used.
Are there any situations where having body camera video evidence would have made a difference in court cases or complaints against your officers?
Chief Kain: We’ve been very fortunate so far and we’ve beaten the odds because we haven’t had many complaints… but our officers are interacting with people every day and we’re put in situations where you may be accused of something, but if you have the incident recorded on body camera then there’s proof of what happened.
