Police Body Camera Drive Goes Online


PALMYRA-----A campaign to raise enough money so officers can buy body cameras is turning to the internet. At least 10 law enforcement agencies in Illinois are using the web for fundraising efforts on the matter.

Departments in Palmyra, Benld, South Pekin, East St. Louis and six other municipalities in Illinois have already signed up for free on the website shown HERE. Individuals and businesses can make donations to a specific department, or they can contribute to a general fund. That fund would distribute the funds to various departments on the website.

When a department reaches $250.00, it can choose to buy a camera or continue letting the fund grow.
