Olney Police Using Extra Cameras As An Extra Eye On Crime

Olney Police Chief Barry Roberts said he's happy his department invested in body cameras a year and a half ago.

Just under a month ago, a Ferguson Police officer shot and killed unarmed teenager, Michael Brown. Because there was no video evidence of the actual shooting, it's hard to tell what exactly happened.

"My first response is if they had a body camera there would have been no question. You would have had the full evidence of what happened you would have had the full story," said Roberts.

The Chief also pointed out that the cameras don't just benefit the officer, they can also benefit anyone who wishes to make a complaint of the officer.

"If my officers did something wrong, I want know about it," said Roberts.

It takes only minutes for Roberts and any other officer to upload their video to the computer.

It's all on record with audio and video so that everyone is held accountable.
