Buckhannon Police Officers to Wear Cameras

Huntington Police Department

Buckhannon's police officers will begin wearing body cameras next year.

The Inter-Mountain reports that City Council recently allocated $14,000 for the

cameras and a server that will store data that they capture. The cameras will record both video and audio.

Police chief Matthew Gregory says he expects all nine officers to be outfitted with the cameras by early 2015.

City officials plan to eventually add a compatible in-car camera system.
