LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - The La Crosse Police Department introduced new equipment for officers to use in the field.
The department settled on Motorola brand body cameras. The department began testing different brands nearly two years ago before deciding on one that worked best for the department.
The Police captain says the cameras are there to do more than just protect from false accusations.
"From an officer prospective, it captures a lot of evidence, for them to review and write accurate reports. It also is great for catching, capturing evidence to be submitted for court purposes,” said La Crosse Police Department Captain Jason Melby.
All La Crosse Police Department officers will begin using the body cameras this summer.
