The Ville Platte Police Department will soon be using a new tool to keep the city's streets safer.
According to Chief Neil Lartigue, the police department will undergo training tomorrow on how to use their brand new body cameras. The cameras will then be put into use once the training is completed.
Lartigue says these cameras will be placed on officers to record video and audio of any incidents to which those officers respond. Lartigue says the officers will activate the cameras themselves when responding to calls.
Lartigue says the recordings can be stored on the camera until officers download them to a computer for further use.
