Body camera's not just can protect a police officer but also citizens, well Albany will begin testing them.

They have a few different models to be testing and a select number of current officers for the City of Albany will be wearing them.  Some officers one model and other officers the other model then in few weeks they will switch. This will repeat once a few other models come are shipped in. Just as in the photo for this article they will be worn in the center off the officers chest.

This is a massive improvement and I would personally like to see this be mandatory for all police across the country. If for no other reason but to protect the citizens. Albany is using the testing to weed out the bugs or issues from each specific camera. When one is chosen all Albany police officers will be wearing them. More info from News Channel 13 below.
