Police may have to delay return of body cams

-A A +A
By Randy Patrick

Bardstown Police Chief Kim Kraeszig and City Councilman John Kelley both want the city’s officers to have body cameras again, but it may take another year or so to get them.

The body cameras and software the police began using in 2015 and that former Mayor John Royalty suspended use of the following year are obsolete because it’s hard to index the video for searches, said Kelley. And because of current budget constraints, the city may not be able to afford new cameras and software for the 2019 fiscal year budget that goes into effect July 1.
