Addressing Our Transportation Funding Needs

As I meet with other mayors from around the state of Utah, one of the things we all have in common is the growing demand on our limited resources to fund transportation and infrastructure needs in our communities.  Of course, the specific needs vary widely from community to community. But the bottom line for all of us is the same: we have growing needs being funded by a flat revenue source.

Police Body Cameras: Some Issues Worth Examination

By CHPD Chief Robby Russo

With all of the recent controversy related to police shootings, “body worn cameras” for officers will become standard. The Utah Legislature will probably be looking at the issue and attempting to establish a template to give guidance in this area. The Cottonwood Heights Police Department (CHPD) is testing various camera manufacturers and looking for funding sources. There is substantial cost not only with the acquisition but storage and civilian staff to manage the data and devices. For instance, if officers have recorded very personal information on a medical call, the law isn’t clear on what should be kept from the public record. How long do we keep the video? Who can access it? Do we redact audio or video of some uninvolved parties? The issue is more complicated on the back end than one may think.
