LAWRENCE, Ind. -- Two Lawrence police officers will start wearing body cameras next week as part of a pilot program introduced on Friday.

Police say the new system will make body cameras plus in-car video available as well.
The cameras will cost the department about $60,000 per year.
Money for this year’s equipment will be supplied from existing funds in the city’s public safety budget.
Additional funding is proposed in the 2017 budget.
