Dayton Police Want Public Input About Body Cameras

Dayton police are asking for the public to comment on the department’s decision to purchase body cameras for its officers.

The Dayton Daily News reports an online survey went live this week and will be open for Dayton residents until July 31. Questions ask about people’s feelings about police, interactions with the community, ways they think body cameras would help officers and when and where they should be used.

It would cost Dayton at least $700,000 over the next three years to purchase and operate the body cameras. The department has applied for a grant from the U.S. Department of Justice to cover the cost.
