Placer County officials approved a $4.8 million contract to purchase body-worn cameras as part of a pilot program for county sheriff’s deputies Tuesday.

The program will begin in January 2022 and last three years.

In a presentation to the board of supervisors, Capt. Jeff Swearingen said the sheriff’s office had decided to purchase the Motorola Watchguard V-300 camera system after extensive testing. The system, unlike others, has an in-car camera that activates at the same time as an officer’s body-camera to capture multiple angles for video evidence.
