KINGWOOD, W.Va. (AP) - Preston County Sheriff Dan Loughrie wants to put cameras in the department’s cruisers.

The sheriff’s office is seeking a grant totaling $65,000 to add the cameras to cruisers. The grant application is with Homeland Security.

The Dominion Post (https://bit.ly/1VrBJyc ) reports that the camera systems would by synchronized with deputies’ body cameras. Anytime the cruiser cameras were activated, they would trigger all body cameras within a 30-foot radius to begin recording as well.

Preston County deputies have had body cameras for two years.

County commissioners gave the green light this week for the grant application.
