Nash County, N.C. — The Nash County Sheriff’s Office announced Thursday that all deputies will be equipped with body cameras following a year of implementation.
A press release from the sheriff’s office said that 28 cameras were purchased at a cost of $23,000 and were funded through a federal grant.
Authorities said the cameras will record about 16 hours of video.
“We are excited at the opportunity to increase the trust that already exists with our citizens. We have worked hard to have an open door policy and this is part of the openness and transparency that we want with those that trust us to keep them safe,” said Sheriff Keith Stone.
