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.
