GLOUCESTER, Va. (AP) - The Gloucester County Sheriff’s Office is looking to purchase 40 body cameras for its patrol deputies, school resource officers and investigators.

Sheriff Darrell Warren tells The Daily Press (https://bit.ly/1XOM24z ) that purchasing the cameras, and the software and data storage equipment, will initially cost the county $99,500 and cover the first three years of operation.

Warren says the cameras will offer the degree of transparency that the public wants.

The cameras were the only capital project the sheriff’s office requested to be included in Gloucester’s fiscal year 2017 capital improvement plan. If approved, the cameras would be purchased in July 2016.

Warren says deputies have been testing and providing feedback on different cameras recently.

He says authorities are still working out privacy policies to be implemented in connection with the cameras.
