Lawrence Police Department implements body cameras, 'game changer' on the streets
LAWRENCE, Ind. - Lawrence Police Chief Dave Hofmann calls the deployment of a body camera system among his 44 sworn police officers “a game changer."
He expects to see them become standard equipment not only throughout central Indiana, but across American law enforcement in the next five years.
“This is, in my opinion, the highest most amazing technology that’s available on the market,” he said.
Since its limited roll out late last summer, every officer is assigned an integrated three-camera system which includes not only a body camera, but also two units in each marked patrol car, one pointing forward out the front windshield and the other trained on the back seat.
