Short summary (Optional): 

"Anchorage officials have discussed introducing body-worn cameras for police for a few years, but lack of funding has stopped the idea from moving forward. Nationwide protests following the Minneapolis police killing of George Floyd revived the discussion, and now Anchorage residents will vote on a tax levy to fund body cameras for the police department on the April ballot."
