Do the Redmond Police wear body cameras?

No. The Redmond Police Department does not have dash or body cameras in operation at this time. Redmond Police Chief Darrell Lowe is exploring equipping Redmond officers with both body-worn and in-car cameras and will present a proposal to City Council in June of 2021. The cost for equipment and staffing is anticipated to be approximately $815,000 to initiate the program and about $635,000 annually to maintain. According to the current estimate for this program, about half of the annual cost will be for the equipment and half for the full time employees that will need to be hired for technology services, records management, public disclosure needs, court case preparation, etc. RPD will be sharing more details with our community as this process moves forward.
