Stamford Police may be getting body cameras. Mayor David Martin announced last week that the City will be applying to for a grant by the Department of Justice. The program, known as the federal Body-Warn Camera Pilot Partnership, will provide support to law enforcement agencies to develop and implement a system for the devices.

So what are the advantages of body cameras? Well for one, city officials say they’re an added safety measure for both police and civilians. Body cameras also create more transparency and provide evidence in questionable situations.

To stay one step ahead, the City’s department is already in the process of drafting body camera policies. Officials say this is all part of a larger push to make Stamford safer. The City is also in the process of expanding its surveillance camera program, with plans to put cameras in parks and other areas.
