Amanda Purcell reports for Columbia-Greene Media that Hudson Police Department officers could be wearing body cameras in two weeks once a policy is written, Police Chief L. Edward Moore said June 24 at Police Committee meeting. Eight cameras will be used at first, before all 26 officers will be fitted for cameras. “We are going to progressively add on [cameras],” Moore said. “We are going to start small. And we will add a couple into the budget. That is a very good start, and it should be implemented very shortly.” But will the cameras be used? “It [the camera] is running continually,” Moore said. “Our only concern is when it should be activated.” Grants of $10,0000 from the U.S. Department of Justice and Hudson River Bank & Trust Foundation helped pay for the cameras.
