MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) - The Muncie Police Department is the latest Indiana law enforcement agency to embrace body cameras for its officers.

Police Chief Steve Stewart tells The Star Press (https://tspne.ws/13RwVfR ) his plans to purchase as many as 90 cameras for his 103-officer department were underway before last summer’s police-action shooting in Ferguson, Missouri. He says he would like to have the camera system in place this year.

Stewart says he likes body cameras because it provides a video record of incidents and knowing events are being recorded tends to improve the conduct of all parties involved.

The Indianapolis and Fort Wayne police departments are among other Indiana agencies adopting the use of body cameras.
