Windham County Sheriff's office to buy body cameras

Posted: Updated:

NEWFANE, Vt. (AP) - A Vermont county sheriff's office is planning to start using body cameras soon.

Windham County Sheriff Keith Clark tells the Brattleboro Reformer the department plans to buy between 20 and 30 cameras for deputies. A camera costs up to $1,000.

Clark said his staff has been asking for them for a while. The sheriff's office has 34 deputies, 16 of which work full-time.

The community of Dover in Windham County has been using body cameras. Rutland approved body cameras for police earlier this year.
