Concerns expressed for BPD body cam program

BOSTON (WHDH) - People in Boston are expressing concerns about the police department’s body camera program.

Police Commissioner William Evans and city councilors took questions from residents about the program at a public hearing Thursday night.

Many people were upset officers have not been wearing body cameras, even though police officials said they wanted it to start by the end of last month.

No volunteers have come forward to wear the cameras, meaning officers will likely have to be assigned to be a part of the program, said Commissioner Evans.
