MINEOLA, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — Body cameras are coming to the Nassau County police force.
Thirty-one county police officers from the 1st, 3rd and 5th precincts will test 62 body cameras from three vendors as part of a yearlong pilot program.
“This pilot will enhance the transparency, promote accountability and advance public safety for our officers and the communities in which they serve,” acting police Commissioner Thomas Krumpter said Monday. “Now that we are in a world in which anyone with a cellphone camera can record video footage, body cameras will give the police point of view.”Comments
