Houma police to get body cameras

HOUMA, La. (AP) - Terrebonne Parish Council has approved buying body cameras for all Houma police officers.

Chief Todd Duplantis called it a win-win situation.

As part of the purchase of 84 body cameras, the council approved on Monday a five-year, $125,470 technology contract with the camera's manufacturer, TASER.

The Courier reports (http://bit.ly/VPjZTz ) the initial setup for the equipment and software is around $55,000. Each subsequent year will cost roughly $14,000.

Duplantis said the new software used to upload and file videos onto a secure online server will replace roughly $12,000 of existing software used by the department.

Once uploaded, Duplantis says the videos cannot be tampered with.
