In all, nearly 800 body-worn camera systems, which will also include and work in tandem with in-car cameras, will be put into the field.

The Indiana State Police (ISP) is now issuing both body-worn and in-vehicle cameras to troopers across the state, said chief public information officer Ron Galaviz on Thursday.

Galaviz said the process started in early June and is expected to take until late August to complete. In August 2020, Gov. Eric Holcomb mandated the ISP would adopt and implement a body-worn camera system by the spring 2021.
