Justice Department Body Camera Police Pilot Program Gets Funding

The Justice Department announced a $20 million pilot program for police body cameras on Friday.
It’s the first component of President Barack Obama’s $75 million Body Worn Camera Partnership Program, which he announced late last year.
The request comes under the legal authority of the Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets of Act of 1968, which authorizes the office of attorney general a maximum of $20 million to help local governments modernize law enforcement technologies.
