STANTON COUNTY, NE- The Stanton
County Sheriff’s Office
purchased 6 WOLFCOM VISION Police
“Law enforcements agencies purchase police body cameras for many
reasons. The Stanton County Sheriff’s Office is finding many
benefits to using police body cameras including the commonly
reported effect of people’s behavior improving when they see the
body camera and know they’re being recorded. We know the VISION
will serve the Sheriff’s Office well with its body camera
program goals,” said
Chief Deputy Todd Jochum helped set up the Sheriff’s
“We went shopping for them online after we had one officer who
bought one [WOLFCOM VISION] to try it out and we really liked
them….Everyone’s still trying to get used to them. They’re
small, nice and simple to use, not as many buttons as previous
body cameras we tried,” said Jochum.
“We got them to protect ourselves and collect video evidence….
People see the body cameras on our officers and they act
different… they know they’re being recorded and start to behave…
it’s like suddenly they’re in church,” said Jochum. The
department has about 10 officers total. “Right now use of the
cameras is discretionary to the officers as to when they want to
record, but we know we’re going to have to work on developing a
policy,” said Jochum.
“I haven’t heard any good or bad feedback yet, but they seem to
be working… They’re good for everything; it’s the whole ball of
wax. They help us gather evidence, people start behaving, it’s
got all the benefits… as long as you’re doing your job right,
they’re not going to hurt you,” said Jochum.
