Maverick County Sheriff Tom Schmerber announced that starting October 21, all officials of Tom Bowles Detention Center will participate in a training course focused on the use of body cams. The classes will be several days long and are required to receive a Certification by the State of Texas.
This certification and training will help avoid issues among jailers and inmates, as there will be constant recording – when officials are in proximity to the cells, during inmate transportation and examination, and other instances.
The software and camera equipment includes 12 cameras at a value of $18,000.
