NEWFANE, Vt. (AP) - A Vermont county sheriff’s office is planning to start using body cameras soon.

Windham County Sheriff Keith Clark tells the Brattleboro Reformer (https://bit.ly/2gyhtjo) the department plans to buy between 20 and 30 cameras for deputies. A camera costs up to $1,000.

Clark said his staff has been asking for them for a while. The sheriff’s office has 34 deputies, 16 of which work full-time.

The community of Dover in Windham County has been using body cameras. Rutland approved body cameras for police earlier this year.
