(WTNH)–The city of New Haven is now one step closer to having body cameras for its police officers.
City officials told News 8 that the Board of Alders voted unanimously on Monday night to authorize the mayor to apply for a $700,000 state grant to buy them.
The grant is part of the Department of Public Service’s “comprehensive problem-solving and community engagement strategy.”
There is no word yet on when the officers might receive the cameras.
