Nashville police are beginning field tests with body-worn cameras. It's a significant step in the city's push for more police transparency and better community relations.
The 20 officers who volunteered for the trial will record their daily police activity, including traffic stops, arrests, searches and interviews with witnesses and suspects. Police say the officers will deactivate the cameras if privacy is needed. The department says they're testing out four different manufacturers and the feedback will be used when determining what equipment to ultimately purchase.
