Denver Police Department to Invest in 800 Body Cameras
The Denver Police Department will be equipping 800 officers with body cameras in 2015 for impartial records and protection for officers against "false claims of excessive force." The system of accountability will cost the city $1.5 million if approved. Police footage is downloaded to a cloud storage system after shifts are finished. A similar program introduced in Rialto, California showed a 60 percent drop in officers' use of force compared to the previous year.
