Aurora police to get new, enhanced body-worn cameras

The Denver Gazette: The Aurora Police Department is set to receive brand new body-worn cameras with additional features by the end of the summer, after the City Council approved the $1-million purchase Monday.

The cameras, provided by Axon Enterprise Inc., automatically record when an officer turns on their patrol car’s lights or siren, when an officer reaches for their gun or taser and when an officer is near another officer whose camera is already on.

The cameras also have superior mounting and holstering options to keep the cameras attached to officers’ uniforms. This was a major priority, according to APD Division Chief Chris Juul, who said the mounting options for the current body-worn cameras are “problematic at best.”
