The Keweenaw Bay Tribal Police will begin using some new equipment with hopes of being more transparent.
The KBIC are equipping all their officers and patrol vehicles with cameras.
Keweenaw Bay Tribal Police Commissioner Dale Dakota says that equipping officers with cameras will also help ensure that everyone in a situation involving the tribal police is on their best behavior.
The department says that body cameras have been shown to improve both the performance of officers and conduct of community members involved with the police.
The cameras will go into effect after all members of the department have been trained to use them and save their recordings.
