Jeffersonville to suspend body camera program, citing challenges due to new house bill

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Jeffersonville Police Department will suspend its body camera program Friday.

Much like Clarksville did earlier this summer, chief Isaac Parker says House Bill 1019 has made it so that it will be too expensive for the department to store all the video.

In a press release Thursday, Parker said the new law would require an expansion of existing maintenance and storage, as well as the purchasing of new software and equipment.

"While we continue to believe in the use of body cameras by our agency to support the community and our law enforcement efforts, we will have to continue the search for viable options to reinitiate this program.
