ALBERT LEA, Minn. – The Freeborn County Sheriff’s Office is going to buy body cameras for its deputies and wants to know what the public thinks about it.

Plans are for the cameras to be worn both on patrol and in the county detention center.

Comments about the use of body cameras can be emailed to BodyCam@co.freeborn.mn.us and must be submitted by October 19.

Letters may also be sent to:

Freeborn County Sheriff’s Office

Sheriff Kurt Freitag says the body camera proposal will also be discussed at an upcoming Freeborn county commissioners meeting.
