New Camera System for Police Officers in Jacksonville

Friday, January 17, 2014

The Jacksonville City Council has approved the purchase of 23 wearable cameras for the city’s police department so police officers can have a video recording of all traffic stops, high speed chases, or other routine activities.

 The council also authorized a three year contract with the cameras manufacturer to store video on a server for police to access when they need it.  Jacksonville Council president Mark Jones says this can be a new method of accountability for the city’s police force and video can be used to determine the worthiness of any claims against the police department.
