MPD patrol cars to get dashcams & GPS

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Dashcams will be installed in all Memphis Police patrol cars.

The process to install the cameras, which also have GPS, will take more than a year.

The cost to install the cameras is not clear at this time.

The move toward the cameras and GPS devices started after a crash where a Memphis officer killed two people and seriously injured two others.

Memphis is one of the last departments in the area to install the system.

There has been an intense discussion on law enforcement installing dashcams and body cameras since the shooting of a man in Ferguson, Missouri.
