Cameras Going Into Ferguson Patrol Cars
Aug. 22, 2014
(Ferguson, MO) -- In the wake of an unarmed black teenager fatally shot by a white police officer, cameras are going to be installed in some police cars in Ferguson, Missouri. KMOV-TV reports a St. Louis area company has begun installing them in police department vehicles at no charge. Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson had previously said his department received a federal grant to purchase two dashboard cams and two body cameras, but didn't have the money for installation. The community has been rocked by nearly two weeks of protests following the deadly police shooting of unarmed teen Michael Brown.
