Body camera

A closer look at a body camera worn by a Denton police officer.

Between them, the city of Denton and Denton County have spent nearly $1 million outfitting county deputies and city police officers with body cameras since 2015.

In return, the public has seen about 20 minutes of footage from two of the six officer-involved shootings in the area during that five-year period. In a third shooting, the Texas Rangers released 43 seconds of dashcam footage from a University of North Texas officer’s patrol car.
