UW-Milwaukee police have had squad car cameras for more than 10 years. They say body cameras will offer another level of transparency.
The students we talked with are all for it.
"Just to know there's evidence or proof of things, I think it's a good idea," said Bethany Griffin.
"Ultimately, it's all about accountability," another student said. "If they're wearing body cameras, you can guarantee that every single officer who's wearing a uniform will be held accountable if something should go wrong. And at the very least, they will act in accordance of that uniform."
UW-Milwaukee's Police Chief Joseph LeMire hopes it has that same effect on students and citizens.
