Questions linger over steep cost of police body cameras

Money: it’s the “major challenge” highlighted in a Toronto Police Service report recommending body cameras for front-line officers. How will the force find the money to pay for the program and keep it afloat?

The report, released Thursday after a year-long pilot project, calls for equipping roughly 3,200 cops with body cams. But that would cost about $85 million over 10 years, which strikes some as too steep, given that a mayor-approved task force is currently looking for ways to trim $100 million from the $1-billion-plus annual police budget over three years.
