IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) -- - Iowa City wants to mount video cameras on some of its police officers.
The Iowa City Press-Citizen says a report by the city's police department proposes buying body mounted video recorders to capture police interactions with the public.
The annual improvement plan also lists the implementation of new red light cameras as a focus for next year. The department also says it wants to keep up with rapid changes in technology.
The City Council recently OK'd traffic enforcement cameras. It is now waiting for further approval from state transportation officials.
