Birmingham police are asking for federal help to buy more body cameras.

Al.com reports city council voted Tuesday to approve an application for a $600,000 U.S. Department of Justice grant for the cameras.

Police Chief A.C. Roper says federal officials are planning to award grants to a dozen cities and the department is working toward every officer being equipped with a camera.

Roper says evening and night shift patrol officers are now outfitted with body cameras.
