All DC patrol officers will wear body cams


At a press conference Thursday DC Mayor Muriel Bowser announced all patrol officers in the District will now be wearing body cameras.

“It was a five million dollar commitment and were committed to a transparent system and will work with the members of the council to have policies in place to make it very clear how we can use footage to keep our communities and officers safe,” said Mayor Bowser.

Joined by Interim Chief of Police Peter Newsham, the mayor thanked the officers who protect us every day.

D.C. leads the nation with the most officers wearing body cameras with more than 26,000.
