TULSA, Okla. - The Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office says they believe they are taking steps to be more accountable and transparent through their body camera program.
They say they are beginning their second phase of body camera testing after they set up policies and procedures for the cameras.
Starting Wednesday, two deputies from each shift will begin to wear the body cameras.
Though the second phase is technically a testing phase, Sheriff Vic Regalado says that the cameras are fully operational, and their footage can be used for evidence.
The new cameras are being paid for by grants and donations.
