The police department issues body-worn cameras to its officers.
February 19, 2016:  The police department today began issuing body-worn cameras to our officers. The cameras will be worn daily by all uniformed officers, including our School Resource & DARE Officers. While there are some restrictions of use, our policy will require that officers activate the camera during all interactions with citizens where the report or investigation of criminal offenses occurs. The videos captured by these and our mobile (in-car) cameras will be managed and retained pursuant to NC state law. In general, any video that contains criminal investigative materials or that which is subject to personnel law will not be released without direction from the courts.
