The Cleveland City Council approved a $1.6 million plan to buy body cameras for city officers on Monday.
The money will be used to outfit 1,000 police officers with the cameras.
With three officer-involved shootings in the last 30 days, Cleveland Councilman Zack Reed said the cameras are needed to give the public a clearer picture of what happens in those types of situations.
The cameras are scheduled to be rolled out at the beginning of 2015
