CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - The U.S. Marshals Service in New Hampshire will be the first in the country to incorporate body-worn cameras into deputy marshals’ uniforms.

WMUR-TV reports that the Axon Body 3 cameras will arrive in Concord by the end of the summer. U.S. Marshal Nick Willard says he has been vocal about the need for body-worn cameras. Willard says he wishes deputies were equipped with cameras last week when six deputies were shot at in Manchester while attempting to serve a warrant.

Willard says he hasn’t encountered resistance from deputies regarding the cameras.
