New Castle County criminals: say cheese!
It’s been about a year in the making, but police officers in the county are now piloting body cameras. According to Attorney General Matt Denn, the goal is for every officer in the state to eventually wear one.
“This is one clear way to show these officers are out there doing the best they can,” County Police Chief Col. Elmer M. Setting told the News Journal.
According to New Castle County Executive Thomas P. Gordon, the cameras are not a reaction to a national increase in incidents involving white officers and black citizens, but a step towards establishing trust and transparency.-30-
