KPD Receives 300 Body Cameras For Officers

The Knoxville Police department has announced that officers should be equipped with body cameras soon after receiving a shipment of 300 cameras.

 

During the summer, the department set the goal of getting all officers equipped with body cameras. Over recent months, select officers have been participating in a trial run with the proposed camera system. In a statement today, KPD said:

 

“The KPD has completed the initial phase of outfitting its officers with body-worn cameras. As part of that phase, 50 Axon body cams and new in-car camera systems have been deployed in the field. The KPD started with a smaller, trial deployment for the initial implementation.

 

That phase was a success, and the KPD recently received the shipment of the remaining 300 camera systems, which will be installed and deployed to remaining uniformed personnel soon.”
