When All of LAPD Get Body Cams, Will There Be More Transparency?

Mayor Eric Garcetti’s $58 million plan to put body cameras on every police officer by July has fallen apart. Now, the LAPD’s 7,000 cops won’t be outfitted with the cameras until next year at the earliest. Even now, when police shootings occur in California, it’s extremely difficult to get even basic information about what happened. If the police do get the cameras, will anyone ever see the footage?
