Law enforcement in Comal County to get cameras
from Austin American-Statesman
A week after New Braunfels police say Lisa Hermes was shot dead by her husband in front of their three children, law enforcement agencies in Comal and Guadalupe counties are getting new tools to combat domestic violence. Officers with the Comal County sheriff's office, New Braunfels Police Department and several smaller departments will get video cameras to record statements and document evidence after responding to domestic violence cases. Recording statements, as opposed to having victims write them, is believed to improve conviction rates and has been implemented successfully in other jurisdictions, Comal County District Attorney Jennifer Tharp said.
