Lawrenceville Police Department Outfits Officers with Body-Worn Cameras

City Council approves $161,297 in Asset Forfeiture Funds for Acquisition

 

LAWRENCEVILLE (METRO ATLANTA) GA – October 4, 2016

The City of Lawrenceville voted to outfit Lawrenceville Police Officers with body-worn cameras at its October 2016 Council meeting. The Department will use asset forfeiture funds to acquire 75 body cameras, 9 in-car cameras and warranty packages that will adequately supply each on-duty officer with the necessary equipment.

“It is important to us that our Lawrenceville Police Department is equipped with the appropriate technology to effectively protect and serve our community,” said Chuck Warbington, City Manager. “We are eager to repurpose these seized funds for the benefit of our businesses, residents, and visitors alike.”

Body-worn cameras are used to preserve evidence and provide an accurate account of activity for on-duty officers.

Chief Randy Johnson added, “The Lawrenceville Police Department already maintains a high level of accountability with its officers. Having a video record of events while on-duty will support our regular routine and ability to serve the community.”
