Body-worn cameras are coming to the NYPD.

Information you need to know

The NYPD is rolling out body-worn video cameras to police officers on patrol. The first phase of this rollout includes equipping police officers working the 3:00 PM to 11:00 PM shift in 20 precincts throughout the city. Once the distribution is completed, the department will begin equipping officers in the remaining precincts, as well as transit districts and public housing police service areas. The NYPD expects to equip all patrol officers with body-worn cameras by the end of 2019.
