Waiting on answers.
Sheriff ROBERT HARDWICK, what is status of police body-worn cameras and dashboard cameras?
In 2016, then-Sheriff DAVID SHOAR stated that he rejected police body-worn cameras and dashboard cameras, rejecting in debate with Debra Maynard the "false narrative" that "cops need to be watched."
A political prostitute, SHOAR legally changed his name from "HOAR" in 1994.
Pompous pachyderm perpetrator of multiple coverups (incurious investigation of $702,666 of Sheriffs office embezzlement over five years, and coverups of the Michelle O'Connell and Eli Washtock homicides), Sheriff SHOAR exited, stage left," rather than face St. Johns County voters once again after sixteen years of flummery, dupery and nincompoopery.
Sheriff SHOAR endorsed SABPD Chief ROBERT HARDWICK, elected Sheriff November 3, 2020.
Sheriff HARDWICK has done what, exactly to restore confidence in the Sheriff's office?
No word on body cameras or dash cameras.
Our St. Johns County Board of County Commissioners meets tomorrow, April 5, 2022.
I have reached out to Sheriff ROBERT HARDWICK, et al. to inquire when St. Johns County will get body-worn cameras and dashboard cameras:
Dear Messrs. Hardwick, Cline, Dunn, Conrad and Migut and Ms. Dixon:
- evaluations of the technology, costs and benefits,
- draft invitations to bid and
- the draft tentative budget for police body-worn cameras and dashboard cameras for FY 2023?
