The Ansonia Board of Aldermen unanimously approved the police department's request for 25 body cameras at a meeting Tuesday night.
Police should receive the cameras by the end of the year, according to the board.
The cameras will be funded in part by a $30,000 grant. The department will cover the rest, which will amount to between $5,000 and $8,000 during the first year.
The police department will pay in full over the next four years, the board said.
