Illinois Police Chiefs Say Cost Still A Concern For Body Cameras
Illinois' chiefs of police group says it can't fully get behind police body cameras because of the way the state's body cam law is written. More specifically, Ed Wojcicki [[ whoa-jis-ski ]] with the Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police yesterday said that until Illinois changes the cost of maintaining the cameras, he can't enthusiastically endorse the law. Wojcicki says it costs departments thousands of dollars to store body camera video, and thousands more to edit it. Wojcicki says the Association of Chiefs wants lawmakers to tweak the law next year.
