Portland Council Approves Body Cameras

(Portland, OR) -- Portland City Council has approved a new policy for police body-worn cameras. The City and the Portland Police Association reached agreement on the policy after months of negotiations. The sticking point was over when officers can view their video after a use-of-force incident. In fatal incidents, officers must give an interview before seeing the video, but they can use the video to write their report. Body camera maker AXON is expected to train officers in August for a pilot program. All officers should be equipped by the end of the year.
