The Los Angeles Police Department will soon begin placing body cameras on downtown officers.
Downtown Angelenos may be the first to encounter a Los Angeles police officer equipped with a new on-body camera.
The head of the Police Commission said Wednesday he has privately raised more than the $1 million necessary to equip hundreds officers with on-body cameras to increase accountability and reduce complaints by the public.
Los Angeles police officers will begin field testing 60 on-body cameras starting in November as part of a pilot program designed to increase accountability and reduce complaints against officers.
The Los Angeles Dodgers Wednesday donated $250,000 to the Los Angeles Police Department to be used towards outfitting each officer with a body camera.
