OKC PD BODY CAMERA INITIATIVE RUNNING AT FULL FORCE
It has been three years in the making, but the OKC PD initiative on body cameras is finally running at top speed. The cameras are intended to hold officers accountable, and also provide beneficial data to all parties involved in officer interactions. There are enough cameras for every active patrol officer to wear one, and the devices are to be used when an officer comes in contact with a person in a public setting. The information recorded will provide nearly indisputable proof of what happens during an encounter with an officer, leaving little room for argument. This type of evidence should help put the public at ease when it comes to questionable officer conduct.
