The Oneida County Sheriff’s Office is getting a new tool to help fight crime.

The Sheriff’s Office is purchasing 70 body cameras for its Law Enforcement and Corrections Divisions.

Sheriff Rob Maciol says the body cameras are an effective tool for accountability for both law enforcement and the public.

District Attorney Scott McNamara says the new cameras will help his office when it comes to prosecuting cases.

After a year of research, evaluation and testing, the Sheriff’s Office has entered into a five-year, $423,000 contract with the company Axon to provide the equipment.  That includes the storage of the video data that will be collected daily from the cameras.

Maciol says the cameras should be ready for use within the next two months.

The Utica Police Department also has body cameras.
