Aitkin County Deputy Dan Asmus

Deputy Dan Asmus shows the new body camea the Aitkin County Sheriff’s Department is now wearing.

The Aitkin County Sheriff’s Department is ready to start using body cameras after a public hearing revealed little to no commentary had been made during the public comment period.

Sheriff Dan Guida announced last month that he was accepting public comments on the use of body cams in addition to the vehicle cameras currently in use. However, at April 14 Aitkin County Board meeting, held online, Guida revealed they had received no public comment, and only a small number of comments on Facebook.
