HIAWATHA, Iowa (AP) — One Iowa police department is adding cameras to its handguns.

Hiawatha Police Chief Dennis Marks told KCRG that the new cameras will help ensure that a full recording will be made of any incident when officers pull their weapons.

Marks says all 14 full-time officers and the department's two reserves will use the new cameras.
