NHP pigs to wear body cams to help stop corruption

body camCARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Nevada lawmakers have approved a measure requiring all Nevada Highway Patrol troopers to wear portable body cameras by 2016.

Assembly members voted to approve SB111 on Monday, and the measure now goes to Gov. Brian Sandoval for approval.

The measure is sponsored by Democratic Sen. Aaron Ford and transfers nearly $1.3 million over two years to outfit more than 400 troopers with portable body cameras.
The bill requires the highway patrol to have regulations in place for troopers wearing the cameras by July 2016.

Lawmakers approved AB162 earlier in May, which requires police to set certain regulations on wearing portable body cameras and clarifies that footage captured on the cameras is a public record.
