Springfield Considers Body Cams For Cops

Springfield officials are considering  if Axon body cameras should be used for police officers in the city.   

The Arizona-based company gave a presentation on Tuesday for the  devices, as well as police care dashboard cameras.  

Police Commissioner  John Barbieri, City Council President Orlando Ramos and state  representatives attended the event, along with other members of the  community. 

Axon offered a one-year free trial of the body cameras  earlier this year, but the union representing police officers is still  in negotiations with the department regarding usage of the technology,  according to Barbieri.
