Body cameras cost millions of dollars to buy and with added maintenance and the space needed to store all the footage the price rises, but with new government assistance it has never been easier for police departments to get and implement body cameras. Although it may not seem like it, body cameras are fairly expensive. In fact, according to the Cato Institute, for Cleveland alone the Associated Press reported that it will cost 3.3 million dollars over a 5 year period to implement body cameras to the Cleveland Police departments. This is a big price tag for body cameras, but the cost is worth it because of all of the added benefits like faster trials. Although the cost may seem like it will prevent police departments from getting the technology, it is not, and this is due to the role of the United States Department of Justice, who recently just awarded twenty-three million dollars this year for police departments to purchase the body cameras and implement them (Volpenhein). With the Department of Justice involved, the body cameras will be make available for all police officers. Along with the Department of Justice, The Bureau of Justice assistance also introduced a toolkit which helps the police officers get their body cameras up and running much faster. Since the introduction of the toolkit body cameras have been implemented into more than 106 police departments across the United States (Body Worn Cameras). With this new toolkit the readily available cameras from the Department of Justice will now get implemented and used much faster. The concern with how the police officers will get the cameras and how much they will cost has been taken care of, but now with all these body cameras how do we protect the privacy of the people and places within the footage?
