Today officers of Coudersport, Shinglehouse, and Galeton Boroughs along with Sweden Twp Police received training in the use and implementation of Body Worn Cameras made made Taser.

Once each department has policies and procedures in place these will be utilized to capture events and encounters as they occur.

The monies utilized for the purchase of these were channeled through from the County commissioners to our Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC), were it was voted on to provide the funds to the county Law Enforcement association to purchase the cameras.

Cool....now we'll be able to get real time videos of the Coudy police officer smoking and texting while he is driving the $70,000 Ford pickup.

Are they going to be required to wear them at all times or can they pick and chose what "Moments" they want to capture?

All those in favor of having the Live Streams on Solmons Blog raise your hand.

Not related, although it's pretty sad that I just got done driving over 3000 miles on Interstates and through cities. The whole time I saw two troopers along side the road doing radar and such. That is until I drove from St.Marys through Emporium and on to my home in Port Allegany. Saw three different state boys and three or four different town cops between St. Marys and Port. Talk about over kill for the population!

This is long over due in Coudersport and Potter County!

So 12:36 I hope what you are saying is that the law enforcement on the other portion of your 3,000 miles was lax and you're thankful we do not have that same approach to things here. There is a mentality among some of the feckless oafs around here that the cops are the bad guys and violating the law is the norm and it's "us" (criminals) vs. "them" (public safety). It's pretty hard to defend lawless or hanus behavior in a civilized society.
