Nashville DA, Police Meet to Consider Body Camera Implementation

Nashville District Attorney General Glenn Funk is hosting a meeting next week to discuss the financial impact of soon-to-be installed police body cameras, the Tennessean reports. The Monday afternoon meeting will include city leaders and criminal justice officials and will focus on a consultant’s recommendations on how to support the implementation of body cameras. Funk and Nashville police say their agencies need millions of dollars to manage the body cameras and the footage they will produce. Public Defender Martesha Johnson also wants money to create a new team to review body camera evidence on behalf of low-income criminal defendants.
