Carlsbad police begin begin wearing body cameras

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS8) - Starting this week, Carlsbad police officers will wear body cameras. 

The department experiments with the cameras over a two month testing period beginning in March. In June, the city council approved a contract for the cameras.

Training and data storage for the cameras will cost the city more than $165,000. Police say the cameras will be clearly visible and community members should assume they are recording.
