Danbury Police Department orders body cameras

The Danbury Police Department had a tentative deal with a vendor last December to get body cameras, but Chief Patrick Ridenhour says the vendor could not meet the terms when the funding was approved. The previous vendor was acquiring a new company and changing models, sending Danbury back to the drawing board.  Ridenhour says they have selected a new vendor and he hopes to have them in by the end of the year.  The newly passed police accountability bill requires body and in-car cameras.  Danbury does have some cameras in their patrol cars, but Ridenhour says they do have to get some new ones.  He notes that from a budgetary standpoint, that doesn't have to be fully implemented until July 2022.  As for training and other provisions in the bill, Ridenhour says the Danbury Police Department is up to date and sent to meet all implementation dates.
