Arlington PD Launches Body Cam Program

ARLINGTON (CBSDFW.COM) - The Arlington Police Department has launched its body camera program, and people have started seeing them on the streets this week.

Police say all sworn officers, sergeants and lieutenants will be issued body cams.

Their uniforms were fitted to allow the body-cams into their shirts, jackets and safety vests. The cameras can capture audio and video of encounters with citizens.

The department anticipates to complete the rollout of the equipment to staff by the end of March 2018.
