As a small law enforcement agency, the Chief says they have to be extra careful when it comes to credibility. “We had seen there’s a lot of issues in the media and wherever else, and we’re a small agency and a lot of times my officers work alone, so it adds credibility to the officers,” said James. “Not that my none of my officers were credible but if there are 2 officers as opposed to one, it’s a lot more believable. When the body camera is there, there are no ifs, ands, or buts,” he added.
