(Toledo, OH) After issues with body cameras, Toledo Police look to California for their new tech.
Toledo police have selected a new company to provide their body cameras after technical problems with previous cameras led to their return.
TPD Lieutenant, Keven Toney says Irvine, California-based Getac will provide 305 body cameras to the department. That number of units will be able to provide full coverage for all field officers.
The cost will be covered by a 228,000 dollar federal Justice Assistance Grant that was previously awarded to pay specifically for cameras.
That money was refunded when the cameras had to be returned.
