Imperial police officers receive new body cameras
The City of Imperial recently purchased two body cameras to be worn by officers in the city’s police department.
City Clerk/Administrator Jo Leyland said the cameras would be useful to the department as in-car video cameras don’t capture video when an officer is away from his patrol vehicle.
“They will be an important tool for the safety and training of our officers,” Leyland said.
Police Chief Ryan Wisnieski said the two cameras replace two older body cameras. He added that the department has utilized body cams for three or four years.
Each officer uses one.
