BRUSLY, La (WVLA-WGMB)– The Brusly City Council is poised to approve a $90 thousand dollar contract to purchase body cameras to equip the entire police force with upgraded equipment.
The city originally entered a contract five years ago. Mayor Scot Rhodes says the measure could have a positive impact on both officers and citizens. “The cameras can come on for instance if an officer has to de-holster a gun. The camera automatically comes on. Those are the kinds of things we look for in better technology for our cameras,” said Rhodes.
