LOGAN — The Logan Police Department is purchasing a new camera system that includes a new type of camera they have never had before.
At the Logan City Council meeting last Monday, August 24, Police Chief Zach Cavalier chatted with city officials about buying the system, which will include three body cams.
Cavalier explained that it will good for both the community and the Department because it will protect both the individuals involved in a situation and the officers.
Cavalier spoke to the City for more than 30 minutes about two systems. First, there was Wolfcom, a company is based in California.
Purchasing two in-car cameras, two rear-facing cameras (to watch subjects detained in the back seat) and three body cams would cost $8,438.
For the first year, the cost of the licensing fees, which are needed to utilize the cameras and cost $900 yearly, would be included.
Another $500 would be added each year for the automatic download system, which would allow officers to be within a certain proximity to the building and have videos and information directly uploaded to the Cloud system. This would not be included in the first year cost.
