West Virginia Sheriff’s office receives donation for body cameras

Staff Reports

The Wheeling News-Register /  Intelligencer reported that Williams recently donated $26,815 for the Marshall County Sheriff’s Office to purchase 35 body cameras — one per officer.

The article included comments from Sheriff Kevin Cecil explaining that the office has used body cameras for about five years, and they have proven to be beneficial to the agency.

“It’s a valuable tool, because it takes away any misconceptions or any guesswork,” Cecil told the paper. “The ones we’ve had, when they’re in use, any questions or issues we’ve had have been resolved as a result of the body cameras.

Cecil said the cameras were expected to be fully implemented by Christmas.
