Brookline Police Department starts rolling out body cameras for officers

Brookline police are set to start wearing body cameras for the first time in the coming weeks.

The department, which has purchased 140 Motorola cameras, will test the cameras with 10-15 officers before expanding their use to the rest of the force.

“The use of body cameras is best practice in policing nationwide. I believe in transparency and accountability,” Chief of Police Jennifer Paster said in an interview. “We work for the people of Brookline, so they have a right to know what’s going on. And I also believe in the work that our officers are doing, and I look at [the cameras] as a way to exonerate officers if unnecessary complaints come in.”

BPD has not named a specific start date, but Paster told Brookline.News the testing would start shortly after the Boston Marathon, which was on Monday.
