Body Cams To Come To Normal

Feb 2, 2016


The City of Bloomington is not the only area town looking at a body camera pilot program. Speaking on GLT's Sound Ideas, Mayor Chris Koos says the town of Normal will also do one. "It wouldn't surprise me if we do it cooperatively with the city of Bloomington, so we all have the same equipment," Koos said.

Police agencies are proceeding cautiously in trying to make sure commercially available body cams fit the requirements of the new Illinois law authorizing the devices. Protocols on when to turn them on and off, and what to tell citizens about the recordings as a matter of disclosure, are also under development in both Bloomington and Normal.
