CBS Miami Article

$1.7 million in grant money was presented to the Hollywood Police Department Wednesday afternoon. 

That money gets all 321 officers a body camera.

"It's important for the nation to build trust around of law enforcement officers and that begins with our law enforcement officers being able to provide transparency," said Congresswoman Frederica Wilson.  

Wilson says that without these body cameras, transparency between law enforcement and their communities does not exist. 

She says with these cameras she's hoping it eases tension primarily on Black men and boys.
