Waterford police officers are now outfitted with body cameras. Waterford police announced that the department’s body-worn camera program is now operational, and officers will be recording interactions with members of the public.
Several Connecticut police departments have officers equipped with body cameras, and others are testing programs. Reporting the initiative, Waterford Police Department made a statement on Facebook:
Smile, you’re on camera!We previously promised we would tell you when our body worn camera program went live. Well, we are live!Yes sir, officers will be recording when they interact with you. So whether you are seeking help, coming to tell the officer how awesome they are or even signaling to us that we are number one…..that’s what the one finger pointed at us means right……well be prepared cause we all have cameras now.
Here we see K9 Officer Epps rocking his new body worn camera. He seems so happy to wear it too. Honestly, our officers were more than happy to start wearing them.
