An investment in new body cameras will help preserve evidence gathered by Hodgenville City Police.

Police Chief Steve Johnson told City Council last week that the Taser cameras cost more than the previous models – but are sturdaier and more efficient.

Chief Johnson said the cameras are to be removed and placed in a charger at the end of each officer’s shift. The camera’s contents will download to the computer where the officer or court officials can review them.
