6 Firms Bid to Equip Baltimore Police Vans With Cameras

Posted: Updated:

BALTIMORE (AP)- Six firms have submitted bids to supply video cameras to record the inside of Baltimore's police vans.
    
City officials asked companies in August for proposals to supply "in-vehicle video camera" systems for the police department's fleet of 23 transport vans. The request came about four months after the April death of 25-year-old Freddie Gray in police custody.
    
The bids' proposed contracts range from $43,000 to $632,000.
    
The Board of Estimates, which is controlled by Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, will decide the winning bidder.
    
Gray sustained a severe spinal injury in the back of the police van following his arrest on April 12, and died a week later. Six officers are charged in his death.
