Another 280 Chicago Police squad cars will be equipped with video cameras — at a cost of $2.2 million — expanding an experiment that began with allegations that a sergeant mistreated state Sen. James Meeks.
The 280 cameras will bring to 310 the number of cameras installed in squad cars to record traffic stops. That’s enough to equip the beat car in every one of the city’s 280 police beats.
Place your bets boys and girls - which are we going to see first? Cameras to provide political cover or PDTs to make our jobs just a little bit easier?
