Body cameras are on the way to the Gloversville Police Department.  Starting on February 1st, officers will begin wearing the audio and video recording devices out in the field while on-duty.

The goal is for the cameras to help officers' performance and to increase safety in the city.

In a statement, the department says it is encouraging feedback from the community as it learns the technology and refines its use.
