John Mason is reporting in the Register Star Hudson Police Chief Edward Moore told the Common Council Police Committee Mon., Dec. 22, he is in favor of body cameras for police officers. Funding for the cameras was cut from the 2015 budget, but Moore told the committee grants to support the purchase of cameras are now more generally available. He said the department would need a minimum of five cameras to meet the minimum patrol requirements and still have one left as a replacement when repairs were needed. “I would prefer [to purchase] one that integrates with the cars. I’ll hold off as this develops and see if money is coming in from outside the city. I think it would resolve a lot of issues quickly,” Moore said. Read the full story in the Register Star.
