Montana law enforcement agencies share benefits of body-worn cameras

GALLATIN COUNTY — Body-worn cameras on law enforcement officers are becoming more and more common across the country.

In a three-part series, MTN’s Gaby Krevat talks to a few Montana agencies leading the charge on body-worn cameras; a Montana city preparing to invest in the technology, and civil rights and racial equity advocates to hear their thoughts on what the technology means for the community trust and justice.

“All of our officers are intending to do their very best on everything. And they discovered that these body cameras show that,” said Detective Justin Sharp with the Belgrade Police Department.
