Captain Mike Hayes from the Cedar Falls Police Department shared stories of innovation by the department. One of these advancements involves officers using body cams on a regular basis. He said that they have used body cams for several years to record how officers have handled incidents.
These body cams are not inexpensive. Thanks to private donations and grant money, the CFPD will soon update and expand their body cam system. Officer Hayes discussed the pros and cons of the various body camera designs on the market today.
We appreciate Officer Hayes telling us about these improvements in policing.
