Alhambra Police to Add Body Cameras

  • By Staff Reports

Alhambra city council has approved purchase of body cameras to be worn by police officers as early as this November.This will make Alhambra the first of the local small-city police departments in the West San Gabriel Valley to take the step many larger cities have already taken.

Monterey Park is expected to take a similar action in the near future.

The council approved spending $115,000 in the first year and then $72,000 for four more years under the contract with the supplier.

The pressure to add body cameras began about two years because of well publicized law enforcement incidents in Los Angeles and around the country.
