Lexington police are planning to roll out body cameras to some 400 officers this summer. The $2.5 million dollar purchase must still win approval by the council. Members of the council’s planning and public safety committee got an update Tuesday.
Assistant Police Chief Dwayne Holman says the money would go for 800 cameras, two for each user. “We want officers to record from the initial contact throughout the conclusion of that encounter, whatever that law enforcement contact is, we want to record the start and end,” said Holman.
