MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (WCSC) - The state supreme court is cracking down on the Mount Pleasant Police Department.

The city will spend $95,000 on new police video cameras and are now adjusting their budget to get it done faster.

Back in July, the state ruled that the cameras be installed when a judge found Mount Pleasant wasn't complying with a 1998 rule that requires DUI arrests to be recorded.

The police department was gradually buying and installing the dash cameras. But now, they will quickly need to add cameras to 48 police cruisers.
