CCSO now has 32 deputies wearing BWCs during their daily assignments

On June 20, 2023, members of the Clark County Council authorized the county manager to sign a five-year contract with Axon Enterprises that will provide body worn cameras (BWCs), vehicle cameras, updated Taser products, as well as other performance improvements and tools for the Clark County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO), 

With a signed contract in place, the county manager and the sheriff selected a team of employees from each office to work together on the implementation of the Axon products. 

“We are pleased to announce that this week, the first training classes for the BWCs were held and we now have 32 deputies wearing BWCs during their daily assignments,’’ read a statement from the CCSO. 

Additional training is ongoing and by year’s end nearly all commissioned personnel will have BWCs according to the CCSO statement. Additionally, the CCSO has begun training on and fielding of the new Tasers.

Once BWCs and Tasers are deployed, the implementation team will move to vehicle-mounted cameras and interview room cameras.  The CCSO anticipates both new features will be implemented by Spring 2024.

“These new technologies will enable us to deliver better service, increase trust, and provide greater transparency to our community,’’ read the CCSO statement. 

“The Sheriff’s Office would like to thank the voters of Clark County for passing the Public Safety Tax, which funds the BWC program,’’ the statement read. “Thank you also to the Clark County Council, the County Manager’s Office, the Clark County IT Department, the Clark County Budget Office, the CCSO Body Worn Camera Team, and all those who worked on this project to make the BWC program happen.’’
