MANDAN, N.D. (AP) — The Mandan City Commission has agreed to equip the community’s police force with body cameras.
The commission approved the cameras unanimously Tuesday with no discussion.
The police department received a quote from Digital-Ally, which already has cameras inside the police vehicles. The package of 28 body cameras, upgraded in-car cameras, accessories, set-up, training and cloud storage would cost about $165,000 for a five-year subscription.
The Lincoln Police Department began using body cameras in early 2020.
The Bismarck Police Department and the Burleigh County Sheriff’s Department do not use the technology.
