Winnipeg City Council will soon consider a multi-year 32-million-dollar proposal to add body-worn cameras for police.

The Winnipeg Police Board is calling on council to approve the spending and refer the final say to the city budget process.

Winnipeg Police Service Chief Danny Smyth says the cameras would increase transparency and accountability by providing a visual record of officer interactions with the public.

The service has sought funding for body-worn cameras for more than a decade.
