The Jupiter Town Council is expected to approve body cameras for the police department at a meeting scheduled Tuesday evening. 

RELATED: How effective are body cameras?

According to a memo from the Jupiter police chief, if the measure is approved the department will purchase 220 cameras.  This number would allocate two cameras per officer. 

The city would also buy special holsters that will automatically turn on the body cameras if an officer deploys a stun gun.

The initial investment is more than $200,000 through federal forfeiture funds. 

Town council meets at 6 p.m. regarding the matter.
