ARVADA, Colo. (KDVR) — The City of Arvada has approved a contract for the purchase of more than 200 body cameras, with plans to begin using them in July.
That $2.7 million contract puts the city in line with SB 20-217, which requires all law enforcement agencies in Colorado to have cameras by 2023.
Public Information Officer Dave Snelling said it will increase transparency within the community. Arvada Police received scrutiny for not having cameras following the 2021 shooting in Olde Town Arvada.
“As a city, it’s going to do nothing but help our transparency,” Snelling said. “It’s really going to show not just police officer actions, but what police officers have to deal with on a daily basis.”
