Grant to place 93 cameras in troopers' cruisers


Maryland State Police accepted a federal grant yesterday to install 93 cameras in cruisers that patrol Interstate 95 between Baltimore and Virginia.

The $396,000 was part of $12 million given to state police agencies throughout the country by Community Oriented Policing Services in the U.S. Department of Justice.

The office is headed by former Baltimore Police Commissioner Thomas C. Frazier.

Col. David B. Mitchell, state police superintendent, said the cameras will "accurately record our interactions with citizens during traffic stops."

Fifty patrol cars responsible for I-95 north of Baltimore are already equipped with cameras.
