NASHVILLE, GA (WALB) - The Berrien County Sheriff's Office says they have a new tool to help fight crime.

The department is installing Digital Alley, a brand new in-car camera system.

Berrien County Sheriff Anthony Heath said all the department's cars will be outfitted with the new camera systems as they phase out older, less reliable systems.

The said the systems will help in court, in training and in reports.

"If you have someone that calls and complains about an officer or makes an allegation, you can replay it and see if they followed protocol and follow up with it.  You can also use it as a training tool," Heath said.

He says the new system will be installed in all the cars in the next few months.
