US President Wants $75 Million for Body-Worn Cameras

Author: Brian Rhodes, Published on Dec 02, 2014

In response to heated protests scrutinizing law enforcement behavior, the White House wants to spur adoption of body worn cameras.

With the major issue of cost stopping many LEO departments from outfitting officers, a new White House proposal pledges $75 million dollars for new cameras.

However, even with funding available, what adoption barriers are there, and just how many cameras will this proposal purchase? We take a deeper look in this note.
