As a result of an officer involved shooting, it has been brought up that Knoxville police still do not have body cameras. I'm a little surprised. I thought it was the norm these days. According to various media reports, it appears Alcoa and Maryville police have body cameras as do Blount County and Knox County sheriff's deputies.

Last November, 2018, WBIR had an article questioning why KPD did not have body cameras. It sounds like it's all about the benjamins. Probably not a good argument.

Shouldn't KPD have body cameras?

Ok so we can spend millions on arts music and bike paths but can't buy body cams....

I agree. This is a disgrace

I agree. This is a disgrace and we'll be taking it up with both mayoral candidates.
