BART police to test clip-on cameras

San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit (CA) police are testing six small clip-on video cameras designed to create a permanent record of police actions in the field. Officers will activate the cameras to record interactions with the public in an effort to improve the agency’s transparency. “They are the next wave of technology in law enforcement,” said deputy police chief Ben Fairnow about the cameras, which are currently on loan from the manufacturer. “In the end, we’re all human, and you can get two people who see the same event differently.” BART has been under scrutiny this year after an officer fatally shot a man in July.
