Raleigh Law Firms Welcome Proposal to Require Body Cams for Officers

Coming soon to a theatre near you… Police Body Cams (cameras on the officer’s uniform).

Two House Bills have been recently introduced related to the use of body cameras by police officers. The bills would fund law enforcement agencies a total of $10 million for the purchase of body cameras, subsidizing $1 for every $5 spent. If passed, the members of the State Highway Patrol and county police will be the first to be required to comply by January 1, 2016.

Especially in light of the recent events in Baltimore, this is welcome news to those of us in pursuit of justice.
