PHILADELPHIA — All patrol officers in Philadelphia will be outfitted with body cameras after city officials signed a four-year, $12.5 million contract with Axon, making it one of the country’s largest police departments to equip all officers with the devices.

500 officers will get cameras every six months until every single patrol officer in the city has one, WHYY reports.
