KU Police Begin Using Body-Mounted Cameras



LAWRENCE, Kan.  -  University of Kansas police officers have begun wearing body-mounted  cameras this week.
 
The department spent more than $7,000 to buy eight cameras this spring to outfit all officers on duty at any given time.
 
Officers tested the new technology this summer before introducing it Monday. The department's  captain, James Anguiano, says it's now department policy for officers to wear the technology at all times  during their shifts.
 
The University of Kansas Police Department is the only law enforcement agency serving Lawrence to  use body-mounted cameras. Anguiano says he thinks the cost of the cameras is why some other law  enforcement agencies don't use the technology.
