HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) - Hagerstown’s new police chief is pushing ahead with a body-camera program.

The agenda for Tuesday’s City Council work session includes a request from Chief Victor Brito (BREE’-toh) for the purchase of 60 cameras from Taser International Inc. The department began a pilot program with six body cameras in February.

The documents show the cameras will cost $52,000, with maintenance and storage costs of about $16,000 a year.

Brito took over earlier this month. The program was begun by his predecessor, Mark Holtzman.
