Police Chief Ernest Jubilee tells The Press of Atlantic City he believes the cameras would give the public an added level of confidence.

The K-9 unit would be the first to use the cameras if the chief can buy them next year.

The city is facing a police brutality lawsuit that included the release of a video showing a 20-year-old Linwood man being beaten by officers and bitten by a police dog.
