This guy is a real piece of work! With a $368 million civil city budget, he couldn't see his way to actually equip his officers with the very best tools to help protect them and the citizens! The CITY admits these cameras fall short. There are various times and reasons why an officer would wish to not have their overheads on. So now any and every conversation, friendly or else, will be recorded. Remember when researching these cameras, the monetary amount to store the info could be prohibitive? Now it certainly will! Can you imagine this guy in charge of the country?
