Months ago, I commented that the wearing of body cams by patrol officers increases the positive behaviors on both sides of the badge.
Last week it was announced that the Iowa City Police Department has received and will be using body cameras for their patrol officers. This will cut down on disputes on “what really happened” during police encounters.
The Press-Citizen states, “The ICPD issued cameras to its entire force on July 27, joining the Coralville, North Liberty and University of Iowa Police departments that have equipped all on-duty officers with cameras in recent years.”
All good news for local citizens.
