STATESBORO – Georgia Southern University’s Office of Public Safety has equipped each patrol officer and four marked patrol cars with video equipment. The department’s 34 patrol officers become the first public safety force in Bulloch County to incorporate body cameras and in-car recording systems into the daily work of its officers. The Office of Public Safety used end-of-year funds to purchase equipment manufactured by Watchguard Video. The department also applied for a grant from the Georgia Governor’s Office of Highway Safety to purchase additional equipment. The cameras and recording system are tamper-proof and video cannot be altered or deleted. Video evidence of incidents captured by the body cameras will be downloaded at the end of each shift and stored on a secure storage system. Videos are saved for 90 days and then deleted unless they are needed for a case, at which time a copy will be made and submitted for evidence.
