Delta Police violence suppression team to use body worn cameras

Since January 2021 the Delta Police had been conducting a limited-use pilot project with body-worn cameras, and was primarily using the cameras during officer training. The pilot was scheduled to conclude at the end of May. However, increased violence during the ongoing gang conflict caused the Delta Police Board to approve an additional use for the cameras during its meeting this week, and to extend the pilot until September, 2021.
