Kenosha Police Department Starts Testing Body Cameras

CHICAGO (CBS) -- There is only one video of the shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha last summer because police there did not have body cameras like police do in Chicago, but starting Wednesday some do.

In August Blake was shot several times in the back by Officer Rusten Sheskey.

After an investigation Sheskey was not charged, and he is back on duty at the police department.

The Kenosha Police Department tested body cameras on some officers Wednesday.

They were approved in 2017 but kept getting delayed.
