Denver police on Wednesday said they hope to equip 800 officers, including all patrol and traffic officers, with body cameras in 2015, reports the Denver Post.
The cameras, which will record audio and video, not only will protect people who make legitimate complaints, authorities say, but the technology also should protect police from false allegations of excessive force.
"The body camera will clear up those moments of conflict," Chief Robert White said. "We're very comfortable that we are going in the right direction."
The equipment will cost about $1.5 million, White said. The City Council still must approve the expense.
