Police to Use Body-Worn Cameras to Increase Protection

Sioux Center Police officers will soon be donning body-worn cameras as part of their uniforms.

The Sioux Center City Council approved a proposal to purchase body-worn cameras and the related equipment for the police department this week.

Police Chief Mike Halma said that equipping law enforcement officers with these cameras will assist them in continuing to provide the best possible protection and security for the community.

“Having body-worn cameras offers additional protection to our officers and the public. They add transparency and accountability, and these cameras are good evidence gatherers as well,” Halma said.

The new cameras will be worn on the front of the officer’s vest. Sioux Center Police officers currently use in-car video cameras.

The Sioux Center Police Department provides coverage 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Its seven full-time officers and three reserve officers are committed to providing a safe place for citizens, enforcing laws and ordinances, preventing and detecting criminal activity, and protecting life and property.
