Body Cam or Not Body Cam…That is the question

The Yonkers Voice hosted a poll. To cam or not to cam. How our community receives the concept of our Police departments adding an addition to the uniform; BODY CAMS. We asked your opinion. An overwhelming 71% voted to cam, while 26% voted no cam and fractional 1% didn’t care. So, we took it to the PBA president Detective Keith Olson. We asked what the position of the Yonkers Police department is on this issue, The cost, and potential problems were if any. Shockingly, The Yonkers Voice was alarmed to hear the exhaustive cost to the program. While Yonkers has record low numbers in crime, known as the 3rd safest of it’s size hiring more police officers would serve better and more cost effective then body cams would. Watch our latest interview with PBA president Keith Olson. A new poll will be released. After learning the economic drain of the citizens we want to know if your position has changed on the subject. Stay tuned to the very end, where Roberto 4U excepts a challenge hosted by the PBA, we invite you too to join us April 10th. Wait for it!
