Lima police officers will soon have a new set of "eyes" in the form of body cameras.

Major Jim Baker tells us testing is now complete and the committee will be meeting on Wednesday this week to discuss what's next. The goal is to get one camera for each patrol officer. It's an expensive purchase, we're told the initial cost will be around $300,000. Cities across the country have been putting body cameras to work for years, so what's taking the Lima Police Department so long? Major Baker says they wanted to make sure they did their due diligence and made the right choice.
