The Seattle Times reported the mayor has directed the police department to get public input and talk to community groups before moving forward with the cameras.
Police had hoped to start using the cameras by the end of March. The devices are installed along the city's shoreline. The cameras were acquired through a $5 million federal Homeland Security grant.
Last week, the mayor ordered the police department to abandon its plan to use drones after residents and privacy advocates protested. The department will not use two small unmanned aerial vehicles it obtained through a federal grant.
