UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - Accountability for cop, criminal and citizen alike will soon move beyond the dashboard for Utica Police and the citizens with whom they interact. The department will soon be outfitted with body cameras, which fasten to their uniform and record audio and video of every interaction with citizens.
UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi unveiled a 3-point plan in his proposed legislation issuing the homemade barricades criminals seem to be creating to deter police. Point one of the plan would make it a felony to fortify a home. Point two would give a district attorney the ability to intervene when a landlord turns a blind eye and point three is the barricades can be used as evidence.
