New Budget Includes Money for Body and Car Cameras for Moberly Police

The Moberly City Council recently approved the Fiscal Year 2024 budget. One element is for funds for new police body and in-car cameras. Finance Director Matt Douglass says these cameras are definitely needed.

The city has entered into a contract with Axon Enterprise for the cameras with storage for 77 thousand dollars for the first year. Subsequent years of the deal are for 56 thousand dollars. Douglass says the budget also includes money for upcoming grant projects.
