NORTHERN MICHIGAN – State Police Posts in northern Michigan are scheduled to begin receiving body worn cameras (BWC) this week.
Tomorrow troopers at the Michigan State Police (MSP) Alpena Post will be outfitted with BWC and trained in their use.
This was made possible by a $3.8 million ongoing general fund appropriation supported by the governor and both houses of the legislature. This ongoing funding ensures we can not only purchase the cameras for all members who may have enforcement contact with the public, but maintain and support the program year-after-year.
The remaining MSP Posts in northern Michigan will be receiving their BWC and training over the next three weeks.
