South Tucson Police Department: Body-worn Cameras
|Agency||South Tucson Police Department|
|Location||South Tucson, AZ|
Meeting minutes from the South Tuscon City Council show that South Tucson Police Department received funding from the Tohono O’Odham Nation to purchase body-worn cameras for all its officers in 2015. As of a 2018 meeting, the police continued to use the cameras and sought grant funding for a new server to store body camera footage and other digital evidence.

Many law enforcement agencies require officers to attach body-worn cameras to their chests or shoulders to capture interactions with suspects and the public. Some cameras stream live and can be combined with face recognition technology.
