For more than two years, New Hampshire State Police have considered joining a growing number of departments across the country to equip its officers and vehicles with cameras.
In November, the department finally asked the state for $1.5 million over two years to implement a cruiser camera program. It was described as a way to “promote safety and reduce risk to the Troopers and the public they serve,” according to budget documents. The request was for cruiser cameras only, not body cameras to be worn by troopers.
