New Fairfield officials are getting a new cost estimate for Police body cameras and dash cams for police cruisers.  First Selectman Pat Del Monaco also noted that a new Resident Trooper Sergeant is starting soon and the Board of Selectmen will wait for his input on the type of equipment the town should purchase.  There was a brief discussion at the Board's meeting about setting policies, and getting more information about the rules and regulations of these body cams along with the experience of surrounding towns.  Under state statute, municipalities are not required to have operational body cams until next July.  There is a 30-percent grant available from the state toward the purchase price, if a system is bought by the end of December.
