According to the Dutchess County Sheriff's Office Facebook Page, the deployment of body-worn camera for the Sheriff's Office members took place on Saturday, March 18th. The cameras will capture both audio/video and members will be trained how to use them. The cameras will be used by Deputies to respond to incidents , take official action, including but not limited to using force and making arrests.

Overall the body-worn cameras are expected to be a big benefit to the Dutchess County Sheriff's Office and it's supposed to be a great benefit to the public as well. The use of the body-worn cameras also honors the department's commitment to Police Reform and Modernization Plan. Thank you to the Dutchess County Sheriff's Office for all you do and keeping us safe. Congrats on being able to use the technology and here's to hoping it helps improve everything.
