With police officers and citizens clashing in communities throughout the country, Parker Police are taking a step to help restore confidence in law enforcement officers.
According to the Englewood Herald, the department launched a pilot program March 26 that would have officers wear body cameras, testing which ones are the best.
“These will really help illustrate the moment,” Lt. Chris Peters told the newspaper. “The video will show what led up to each decision.”
The cameras were purchased a year ago, but software issues caused the delay in rolling the program out. The test will last two months. The data gathered will determine whether the department decides to move forward with rolling the cameras out to all officers.
