Michigan’s Lansing Police Department will begin testing several body camera models in the coming weeks.
According to Michigan Radio:
[Lansing Police Chief Mike] Yankowski says 14 officers will test three different models of cameras for 30 to 60 days. Each officer will try each model of camera.
The cameras the officers will test are made by L3, Taser and Digital Alley. L3 is the same company that provides the department with its in-car cameras. Taser uses a cloud storage system. Digital Alley is used by other Lansing-area police departments.
“Our decision for LPD to implement our body-worn cameras was not taken lightly,” Yankowski told Michigan Radio. “Mayor Virg Bernero has been very supportive of making sure that the men and women of the Lansing Police Department have the latest technology and training.”
