The Springfield Police Department advocated to the Springfield City Council for funding to allow body-worn cameras to be distributed and utilized by every officer. In mid-2020 a funding source was identified and in October 2020 City Council approved the funding and a contract with Motorola Solutions for the purchase of Watch Guard body Cameras. The cameras will begin being distributed to officers on the week of January 25, 2021.
