The analysis was conducted by Northeastern University researchers Jack McDevitt and Anthony Braga.
In the pilot program, 100 cameras were placed on patrol officers in five police districts, and plainclothes officers in the Youth Violence Strike Force, which tends to gang matters. There were 281 participating officers in total, and they typically worked day shifts. The age, race, sex, and experience levels of those in the pilot program were equitable to those in the control group, officials said.
