Evansville police officers will soon be equipped with more body cameras after an incident involving an officer and an Evansville firefighter.
"The police department has been trying different models of cameras. The last one that they want to test is due this week, and as soon as they evaluate which model, which type of technology they want, then we'll proceed with purchasing the cameras initially for all uniformed officers," Mayor Winnecke said.
The mayor told 14 News that those cameras will be purchased using money collected during drug raids. That way they money won't have to be put into the budget.
