OWENSBORO, KY (WFIE) – Owensboro Police will now be able to record evidence more accurately, and can do the job hands free, thanks to new technology.
Deputy Tom Whitford with the Daviess County Sheriff’s Office says doing his job without any back up or protection can get difficult.
Deputy Whitford uses a body cam, it’s only a few inches long and attaches to his uniform. Without it, he would not be able to prove cases like the one he just described.
Anything he sees and hears, gets recorded, downloaded, and then replayed instantly, either for evidence, or to confirm police reports.
