  • Diverse group of Boston officers chosen to wear body cameras

    The Boston Globe - 08/24/2016

    A racially diverse group of 100 Boston police officers assigned to wear body cameras in a pilot program come from districts across the city, with some from the city’s high-crime neighborhoods, areas heavily populated by students, and districts trafficked by tourists.

    The officers — who are scheduled to begin training Wednesday — were selected by Anthony Braga, director of the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice at Northeastern University and a Police Department consultant. He and his team of researchers used neighborhood crime and activity data and a random selection process, said department spokesman Lieutenant Detective Michael McCarthy.
