County officials in northwestern Arizona have approved a deal that would provide body cameras to deputies in Mohave County.
Today's News-Herald reported that the Mohave County Board of Supervisors approved the deal with Axon on Monday during a special meeting. The agreement is estimated to cost $1.25 million over the next five years. Mohave County Supervisor Ron Gould said he is in favor of body cameras but not that the deal was presented at a special meeting intended to address COVID-19. Gould argued that the public may not have been able to comment on the agreement since the agenda was only posted two days in advance.
