Yahoo! National News - Wed, 08/19/2015 - 03:35

Detroit Police Officers stand along Woodward Avenue during a May Day protest against the Detroit Emergency Manager and the municipal Bankruptcy in downtown Detroit, MichiganAll Detroit police-marked squad cars will have dashboard cameras within a year and all officers will be equipped with body cameras within three years under a program intended to protect both citizens and officers, city officials said on Tuesday. Several U.S. states and cities have approved or expanded the use of body and dashboard cameras in the past year since a white officer fatally shot an unarmed black man in Ferguson, Missouri, increasing public pressure to monitor police use of force. Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan said the city's goal is to build a police department where every officer-citizen interaction is recorded.
