Denver Sheriff Department to add body cameras in downtown jail intake, plans to expand to all deputies

The Denver Post: Denver sheriff’s deputies working in the most volatile area of the city’s downtown jail will begin wearing body cameras as part of a program the department hopes to expand into the rest of the facility.

The Denver Sheriff Department plans to purchase 90 cameras for deputies working in the intake area of the Downtown Detention Center. Deputies will begin to wear them starting next year if the budget allocation is approved.

Unlike the body cameras, the cameras already in the jail do not record audio, Sheriff Patrick Firman said at a budget presentation Tuesday to City Council members.
