SALEM, Ohio (WKBN) – The Salem Police Department is buying new body cameras.
The chief said it’s thanks to a $35,000 grant from the Pearce Foundation.
This grant will allow the department to buy 14 new Watchguard V-300 body cameras.
It can also buy 14 extra batteries, new software and a new server with a huge storage capacity, as well as pay for licensing fees.
The department already has six body cams it got in 2015 from the Shane Detwiler Foundation.
