Cameras coming to sheriff’s patrol cars

CLAREMORE —

Rogers County deputies will soon receive cameras in all county patrol vehicles.
The cameras will be paid for by a $318,000 three-year lease purchase, said Rogers County Sheriff Scott Walton.
He said the video recorders can automatically scan license plates, providing information to officers regarding stolen vehicles, expired tags, or warrants. 
The cameras will be able to record footage from all sides of the vehicle.
Walton said the county currently has nearly $20 million in warrants.
“Not all of the money from (the warrants) will be accumulated; but if we can obtain just a part of it, the cameras will pay for themselves,” he said.
In addition to video recorders, deputies will receive wireless computers for patrol. With the information caught from recordings, deputies can use the software to write reports from their vehicles.
“Right now, deputies are having to drive back to the office to type in reports from a desktop. The cameras and computers will keep patrol units in sectors, creating better response time and driving down fuel costs,” said Walton.
RCSO plans to have the new technology equipped in all 25 patrol cars within the next 60-90 days, he said.
