U.S. Customs and Border Protection will decide whether or not to use body-worn cameras before the end of this year, according to an official in charge of a nine-month study of the technology.
The study was launched in October 2014 as part of a response to use-of-force complaints involving border patrol agents. The cameras were used in training and in the field, in land, air and maritime environments. The department’s Body-Worn Camera Working Group is now compiling the findings and writing a report for Commissioner Gil Kerlikowske.
