Seattle police officers will soon be wearing body cameras to record all interactions with those they contact while on duty. A dozen officers in the Department’s bicycle squad were the first ones, beginning in late December 2016. Eventually all 850 officers will be wearing them by the end of 2017. When the body camera is on, a visible light shows, alerting the contacted person that they’re being recorded. The department hopes the body cameras will reduce complaints against police and inspire public trust in the Seattle police.
