Mayor: Police Body Cameras by December

The Baltimore Police Department will have body cameras by the end of the year, mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake promised during a press conference Wednesday morning. At the same press conference, Rawlings-Blake also announced that she had joined the City Council president in requesting a Department of Justice civil rights full pattern and practice investigation into the city's police department. The mayor said she discussed this request with Attorney General Loretta Lynch on Tuesday, who is in Baltimore with a team of DOJ officials investigating the death of 25-year-old Freddie Gray, and expects an answer soon.
