Los Angeles, CA—Today, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors voted to begin implementation of a body-worn camera program for the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department. Chair of the Board, Supervisor Janice Hahn released the following statement:
“I have long been an advocate of body-worn cameras. They increase transparency and accountability and encourage civility on both sides of the law enforcement aisle. I look forward to seeing these cameras on the deputies of the largest sheriff’s department in the nation.”
The motion passed today was authored by Supervisors Mark Ridley-Thomas and Supervisor Hilda Solis. It requires that the Sheriff provide the final body-worn camera policy to the Board prior to purchasing and deploying cameras. Read more here.
