Schools in metro Atlanta could soon see body cameras on their school police officers' uniforms.
One of those is the Atlanta Public School system, which won a grant from the Bureau of Justice Assistance. APS, Clayton County and DeKalb County School Districts all received grants. DeKalb declined the grant, and Clayton County has not released information about their plans for the cameras.
APS will be holding two community meetings about the program to give parents the chance to ask questions. The first was on Thursday Jan. 25 at the Martin Luther King Middle School Auditorium. The next meeting is slated for Jan. 30 at the Benjamin E. Mays High School Auditorium from 6:30 until 8:00 p.m.
Atlanta will join Gwinnett County Schools, who have had body cameras for six years, and Henry County Schools, who have had them for less than a year.
There is no word on when Atlanta Public Schools or Clayton County Public Schools will roll out cameras to their officers.
