Body Cameras

Booneville Police Department Sgt. Scott Caldwell and Capt. Thomas Mynatt display vests with new body cameras in the center.

Booneville police have added some new high-tech tools to help them as they protect and serve.

The city began implementing the latest Axon camera system in January, a comprehensive system that includes body cameras for all officers, sensors to activate the cameras automatically in high risk situations, an extensive software system to provide secure storage of video and more efficiently manage evidence in cases, and much more. Booneville’s system will also eventually add connected cameras in all patrol vehicles and tablets with docking stations to allow officers to do reports and other paperwork while out in the community.
