Mashantucket police to begin full-time use of body cameras in January
Mashantucket — Beginning the first week of January, members of the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Police Department will become the first in the region to make the use of body cameras part of their everyday routine.
For police Chief William Dittman, the decision to join the growing number of forces with mobile cameras was an easy one.
"This is the state of Connecticut. It's going to be a mandate — we can see it coming," Dittman said. "We wanted to get ahead of the curve. We want to be the most proactive police department in the area."
