Results from a recent Poll Question on the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office were interesting.  The questions were “Should all law enforcement vehicles be equipped with dash cameras?  Should all law enforcement officers be required to wear body cameras?”

The results were:  

4.4% said “No to both, it should not be required.”

15.2% said “Yes to car camera.”

80.4% voted “Yes to both car and body cameras.”

Please take our current poll to learn what the cost of equipping all LCSO vehicles and officers with car and body cameras is estimated to be.  This will be added to the 2015 LCSO Budget requests and discussion will be held with the Livingston County Commission at the budget meetings.
