Central Illinois Police Agencies Partner on Purchasing Body Cameras, Council Approves Measure

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00
Peoria Police are partnering up with other nearby agencies to make a purchase order on body cameras in order to get a better deal on the units.
The Peoria City Council approved the plan Tuesday between Peoria Police, East Peoria Police, Peoria County Sheriff’s Office, and the Peoria Park District to buy the body cameras.
In a previous meeting, Interim Police Chief Loren Marion said he feels all officers should wear the devices including upper management to help improve transparency.
“I think it’s a major development for the people of Peoria, because it introduces, much like the dash cams did, another layer of protection for everybody,”  said Chuck Grayeb, 2nd Dist. councilman.

Grayeb said he would like to the officers outfitted with the cameras “hopefully soon,” but it’s still unclear when all of the corresponding agencies will implement the cameras.
