Los Lunas getting lapel cameras

........................................................................................................................................................................................

The Los Lunas Police Department has moved to new high-definition lapel cameras for officers and has become the latest law enforcement agency to use the devices.

The new cameras cost $3,500, according to KOB-TV.

A recent lapel recording caught a New Mexico State Police officer putting a repossession man in a choke hold. The officer resigned this week over his confrontation.

The Albuquerque Police Department now requires all officers to record their interaction with the public. New Mexico State Police also is moving to requiring officers to wear lapel cameras.
