Baltimore County Equips 1,400 Officers With Body Cameras

Baltimore County has trained and equipped 1,400 police officers with body cameras — one year ahead of the original schedule.

The Baltimore Sun reports:

Since the first officers started wearing cameras, the county has handled more than 250,000 recordings covering 45,000 hours of video footage.

The first five years of the program is expected to cost $7.1 million, including $1.25 million for the Axon Flex cameras and equipment and another $5.9 million for maintenance and storage.
