Ashtabula police will soon be wearing body cameras

ASHTABULA — Ashtabula police will soon be wearing body cameras as part of their uniform. City Council approved funding last year (Oct.) for 26 body cams after city police tried them out, but there’s still some paperwork to do before they go active, Ashtabula Police Chief Robert Stell said. Cameras will go only to patrol officers — the chief, jail administrator and detectives will not get them. Officers are expected to begin wearing the body cams starting next month.
