  18. Legislators won't require body cameras on policeRead the original story w/Photo

    Apr 28, 2015 | Norwalk Citizen News

    A key committee of Connecticut's Legislature on Tuesday morning killed language in a bill that would have required mandatory body cameras for Connecticut police officers. In reaction, members of the Black and Puerto Rican Caucus , led by Sen. Gary Winfield , D-New Haven, and Rep. Bruce Morris , D-Norwalk, said they were disappointed and would attempt to revive the proposal before the Legislature adjourns at midnight June 3. They said a small pilot project in which the state would pay for body cameras in several towns and cities and report back to the General Assembly in 2017, is inadequate at a time when the interaction of police and minority communities is leading to deep scrutiny, protests and even violence throughout the country.
