FREDONIA, NY (WNY News Now) – University Police officers at SUNY Fredonia will soon start to wear body-cameras while on patrol.

Worn on officers’ uniforms, the camera feeds will record whenever a officer is responding to a call.

Exceptions to this include when the officer would respond to “sensitive situations” due to privacy concerns. Furthermore, the camera would not record at community events, like the recent “Cones with a Cop” gathering.

“The officers and staff of University Police care deeply about the safety of our campus and the success and wellness of our students,” explained University Police Chief Brent Isaacson. “The implementation of a body-worn camera program is UPD’s latest effort to use the best tools and techniques of community policing to build a trusting relationship with our campus community.”

In the end, University Police Chief Brent Isaacson believes this addition will improve transparency and accountability within his department.
