CANTON, N.Y. (WWNY) - St. Lawrence County sheriff’s deputies are a step closer to getting body cameras.

The county legislature’s operations committee voted 15-0 Monday to authorize their purchase for all deputies.

A final vote will come at February’s full board meeting.

The cameras are a key part of the department’s plan to comply with Governor Andrew Cuomo’s police reform and reinvention initiative.

The cameras and technical support will cost $60,000.
