LPSO Deputies Now Wearing Body Cameras
Thursday, March 31, 2016
After several months of evaluation the Lafayette Parish Sheriff's Office have issued wearable video cameras to LPSO patrol deputies. The body worn cameras, which have never been used before by LPSO deputies will be a valuable tool for the department. The cameras will give deputies the ability to record audio and video of encounters with the public which could help guard against deputies' misconduct and clear deputies who have been falsely accused of wrongdoing.
