ALBERT LEA, Minn.- Last month The County Board of Commissioners unanimously voted to approve the purchase of body cameras for deputies in the county.
Under Minnesota law, they have to allow the public to give feedback at three different points in the process.
Today was the public's second chance to express concern or ask questions.
One man was there to listen to the body camera discussion but nobody came to express their opinion.
“You know that's to be expected from what we seen other counties go through who employed body cameras before us they really didn't have much for a public comment at their hearings,” said the Sheriff.
Freeborn County Sheriff Kurt Freitag told KIMT he hasn't gotten any negative comments about the implementation of body cameras.
The Freeborn County Sheriff's does not have a date set for the third meeting yet. We know that meeting will focus on policies and procedures regarding body cameras.
