Short summary (Optional): 

After nearly an hour of public comments and discussion, the Madison Common Council on Tuesday unanimously voted to re-refer a proposal to implement a body-worn camera pilot program for the city’s police department to its April 19 meeting, delaying a decision on whether to move forward with the proposal. The one-year pilot program calls for 48 body cameras for officers in the city’s North District. The council approved $83,000 in its 2021 capital budget for the program.
