LOS ANGELES — After 17 years of delay, Los Angeles is finally moving ahead with a plan to install in-car-video cameras in its police department’s patrol cars – aiming to improve accountability and to earn public trust.
L.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa announced Thursday at a press conference in the Police Academy that the Los Angeles Police Department would install cameras in about 300 cars in its South Bureau, which covers the most violent and diverse part of the city.
