Waco Police are adding to their uniform.

After a two year process all 250 officers in Waco will be issued a body camera. According to KXXV, Waco Police Chief Ryan Holt said they are leasing the cameras for a 10-year period. Service and equipment for the first year will cost $353,000. He expects to pay $283,000 in subsequent years. The Waco City Council approved for the first year to be paid for upfront.

The body cameras  must be on during interactions with the public, in the middle of a pursuit and during an arrest.

Footage can be kept from anywhere between a couple of days to several decades.
