Grant Helps Pay for Body Cameras for Schenectady Police

Ankeny police officers are now wearing body cameras

Schenectady City Council has voted to accept a $165 thousand grant that will help pay for body cameras for police officers. 

Officials are now said to be researching the kinds of cameras that are out there, and working out policies for using them. 

Assistant Chief Michael Seber tells the Gazette a trial run involving cameras for 8-10 officers could happen by February or March. 

Albany police are currently in the midst of training officers on the use of cameras.
