Henderson Police implementing new body cam technology

The Henderson Police Department is partnering with Utility Incorporated to add a tool the department and the company say improves upon traditional body cameras.

"Traditionally they've been manual on off in nature, magnetically mounted or clipped to the outside of the uniform, which is rife with issue,” said Chris Lindenau with Utility Incorporated. “The types of circumstances when officers are least equipped to find the manual on off button to their camera are those same circumstances when agencies are expecting, and the public is expecting, to have video."

The technology automatically activates officers' body cameras when they withdraw and re-holster their guns. The cameras are also activated when the system detects the sound of officers firing, or when they're fired upon.
