The Boston Police have reached a union agreement with the city for up to 100 volunteer patrol officers to wear body cameras in a six-month pilot program. Mayor Martin Walsh and Boston Police Commissioner William Evans announced the agreement on Tuesday after the Boston Police Patrolmen's Association (BPPA) agreed to the pilot program. Only patrol officers who volunteer to wear body cameras will be participating in the program. The start date of the program is still being determined. The pilot program will be evaluated after the six-month period to determine the next steps on a potential permanent program. "In Boston, we are fortunate to have strong relationships with our communities and I'm confident that body cameras will serve as another tool for the Boston Police Department to continue their work in the neighborhoods," said Walsh.
