The Lebanon Police Department has received a donation of $18,000 for the purpose of purchasing body worn cameras. The department had been exploring the integration of body worn cameras into their current system but due to budget constraints, had delayed the program for future funding consideration.
The donation will allow the purchase of ten body worn cameras for Lebanon officers who are working uniformed patrol. The donation also funds the necessary accessories, hardware, installation, training and support required to integrate the body worn cameras into the department’s current system.
The ten cameras will be shared by the roughly 22 patrol officers that are assigned to the patrol division and any other officer who may be working a uniformed patrol assignment. Currently, officers wear a wireless microphone to record audio while an in-car camera captures video.
