JAMESTOWN – The discussion on whether to require Jamestown Police Detectives to wear body camera’s while in the field will continue at Monday night’s city council work session meeting.
Last month Councilman At-Large Jeff Russell (R), a former Jamestown Police officer himself, made the recommendation.
Russell says that wearing body cameras help clear any matters involving allegations that could be made against police detectives, or their supervisors.
Currently only uniformed police officers wear body cameras in the City of Jamestown.
The councilman has so far received vocal bipartisan support on his proposal.
The lawmaking body is scheduled to meet at 7:30 p.m. via Zoom, residents can watch the meeting live at JamestownNY.gov/live.
