Police To Get Body Cams

Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano, Minority Leader Kevan Abrahams, Police Commissioner Thomas C. Krumpter and other elected officials recently announced a pilot program that will equip a number of Nassau County police officers with body cameras in an effort to increase transparency during interactions with the public. As part of the program, a total of 62 cameras will be assigned to 31 officers from the First, Third, and Fifth Precincts, which includes the communities of New Cassel and Westbury.

“Crime is down 25 percent since I took office in 2010,” said Mangano. “Crime is at the lowest levels since statistics were first recorded and Nassau is the safest large suburban county in America. This success is directly attributable to our officers, intelligence-led policing models and strategic communication. Advancements in technology have also made it possible for police officers to receive and input valuable intelligence through the computers in their patrol vehicles, effectively turning these patrol vehicles into mobile police precincts. This body camera pilot program seeks to expand upon our efforts by using the latest technology to increase transparency during interactions with the public, strengthen officer performance by using footage for training and improve evidence documentation for investigations and prosecution.” [Read more…]
