The Muskogee County Sheriff’s Office received body cameras from grant funding last week and are set to put them into service today.
Last Wednesday, the sheriff received new body worn cameras from grant funding received through the Oklahoma Attorney General’s Office. The body cameras, made by Reveal Media, are the first body camera used by the sheriff. The system, which included storage, download docking stations and 20 Reveal Media D3 cameras arrived at the Sheriff’s office last week.
The cameras themselves have a 36gb internal storage, an articulating camera head, a wide angle lenses, and a forward facing screen to allow the public to see the recording in progress.
The software and management system allows deputies to dock their cameras. The data is then transferred to the management software and stored to the server.
The Sheriff’s Office was awarded a $30,000.00 from the Oklahoma Attorney General’s Office through the Safe Oklahoma Grant earlier in 2018.
“This is just another tool at our disposal. It will help keep the public and deputies safe,” said Sheriff Rob Frazier.
