Sarasota Police to purchase body cameras for officers

  • 0

SARASOTA, Fla. -- Coming this fall, when Sarasota Police respond to a call, the officers might be recording you by using a small bullet-shaped camera.

City leaders have given the okay for SPD to purchase 24 body cameras through a $36,000 grant. The on-officer camera is called Axon Flex, made by Taser.

The videos they record are often used in prosecuting cases, training officers, and defending officers from false claims of use of force.
