The Neoga Police Department has registered with BodyCameraDonations.com.
This is a new trend for smaller police departments that need body cameras but can’t get funding through grants or other means. This website depends on community support to fund donations of body cameras to departments that need them. This department is hoping to get donations for 3 WOLFCOM Police body cameras ($325 each- shipping cost included).
Officer Matthew McConnell is serving as the Department’s donation effort contact. He explained that body cameras will show first hand what the officer encounters and exactly what happened in in a situation. Additionally, they show more accountability on the part of the officers and the public.
