MOORE, Okla. (AP) - A central Oklahoma police department has announced the purchase of 18 body cameras for its officers.

The Moore department also says its bought software and storage capabilities for the devices. It paid $31,000 total for the technology as part of a pilot program that will last six to 12 months.

If the department deems the program successful and finds more available funding, it says it’ll purchase an additional 60 to 70 cameras to equip all of its officers.

Police departments around the nation are purchasing the devices to help offer visual evidence when complaints are filed against officers.
