Sheriff’s Office distributes body cameras to deputies

The Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Office has begun distributing body cameras to its deputies. Deputies have completed training sessions regarding the use and maintenance of the cameras and they are being assigned to Patrol, Civil, Juvenile, and Investigative Divisions.

“When I was elected, we began researching body cameras and their effectiveness in modern policing,” Sheriff Williams said. “The expense of adding cameras to an office of this size was substantial. While the cameras themselves were not the bulk of the price; rather the storage space required to retain the footage captured.”

The Sheriff’s Office made the decision to purchase Axon Enterprise equipment based on their reputation and reliability. The deputies are grateful for the aid the cameras will provide in officer safety and documentation of calls.
