Ypsilanti City Council Tuesday night will consider paying for body-worn cameras for the police department.
Chief Tony DiGiusti is asking for $54,634 to not only pay for 15 body-worn cameras, but to upgrade the department's in-car video system.
City Council will also consider transferring ownership of two parcels of land to the Ypsilanti Housing Commission to be used in part as offices where low-income residents can have access to the Internet and Family Empowerment Program counselors.
Tuesday, Ypsilanti City Council approved the purchase of the cameras. A detailed update will follow this post.
