The Bradley County Sheriff's Office announced that all Bradley County patrol deputies have been issued brand new body cameras and, as of Thursday, have received full training on the functions and policies of these new products.
In March of 2020, Sheriff Steve Lawson first presented the proposal for new body cameras to the Bradley County Commission and has worked very closely with them and Mayor Gary Davis to make this upgrade possible.
“I am very appreciative of the synergy that our offices maintained through out this processes,” said Sheriff Lawson. “Together, in less than a year, we have accomplished a major goal of my administration and for that I am truly grateful. It is my hope that these new body cameras bring further accountability and protection not only to my officers, but also to the fine people of Bradley County that we serve.”
Funding for this project has been made possible by the state of Tennessee, the Bradley County government and donations from supporters.
The BCSO thanks Mayor Gary Davis and the entire Bradley County Commission for making this possible.
