No Money For Body Cams

No Money For Body Cams

WINNIPEG - A plan to buy body-worn cameras for Winnipeg police is running into some opposition at city hall.

Mayor Brian Bowman's Executive Policy Committee has voted 6-1 against increasing the police budget to purchase the cameras.

Bowman says there's already enough money in the police department's $300 million budget if it wants to prioritize body cams.

City council will have the final say.

The plan would cost $32 million over six years.
