Cleveland Finalizes Body Camera Buy

(Cleveland)- Cleveland police officers will have body cameras in the field early next year.

City Council approved a two-and-a-half-million-dollar contract Tuesday to equip every officer with the cameras.

Some council members are critical of the decision to wait until January to issue the cameras, saying they might have helped prevent the Tamir Rice shooting.
