Short summary (Optional): 

Fargo police officers begin training Wednesday with new body cameras, which are expected to be ready for street use soon. In October, the in-car video and interview room video will be integrated into the same camera system. The Fargo City Commission approved purchasing the body cams, tasers and other equipment in early May. The $2.8 million cost was covered by the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.
