VERMONT- The debate over police body cams in Vermont is coming down to money.    

The attorney general says state police should get them. State police say it costs 260,000 dollars a year to store the information and they don't have that kind of money.   


The attorney general says while body cameras have limitations, they still provide the best evidence of what happened in some situations.   

He calls them good for the officer and citizens.
