TULSA, Okla. – A local police department has received a large grant to fund body cameras for officers.

The U.S. Justice Department has awarded $599,200 to the Tulsa Police Department as part of the Body-Worn Camera Pilot Implementation Program.

Nationwide, more than $23.2 million was given to 73 agencies in 23 states as part of the program.

The grants require a 50/50 in-kind or cash match.

“Today’s nearly $600,000 will allow the Tulsa Police Department to develop and enhance their body-worn camera program,” said U.S. Attorney Danny Williams Sr. “The Justice Department is committed to supporting the safety of law enforcement officers who protect our communities.”
