Toledo city council would is looking at a proposal that would require all TPD officers including SWAT and gang task force to wear body cameras. Is this a good idea? Councilperson Larry Sykes who is in favor of the idea says the cost would be offset by savings from not losing lawsuits brought by citizens. Ever since 2015 TPD has used body cameras but not all officers are equipped with them and gang task force and SWAT do not have them.
Gov DeWine, Mayor Kapszukiewicz, and Chief Kral all back the proposal.
