The Phoenix Police Department recently received a federal grant to buy 50 on-officer cameras for the Maryvale precinct.

The $500,000 comes from a U.S. Department of Justice Smart Policing Initiative grant. Phoenix police will partner with Arizona State University to examine the impact of the cameras on crime and public and police accountability.

“The technology that this grant will provide will enhance our officers’ ability to provide quality police service in keeping with the highest standards of the Phoenix Police Department,” acting police Chief Joe Yahner said.
