MOORE, Okla. (AP) – A central Oklahoma police department has announced the purchase of 18 body cameras for its officers.

The Moore department also says its bought software and storage capabilities for the devices. It paid $31,000 total for the technology as part of a pilot program that will last six to 12 months.
