2 Md. agencies add body cameras

Cpl. Francis Webb of the Cheverly Police Department recently improved his shooting technique when he makes traffic stops. It’s all just a matter of making a few adjustments to the camera.

For Webb, it was wearing his department-issued body camera lower on his chest in order to record the faces of people he stops.

“When I had it the first time I had to bend over a little bit,” Webb said.

Other officers at the police departments in Cheverly and New Carrollton may do the same, as the two stations have joined 2,600 other police agencies across the country and internationally that have purchased wearable body cameras from Vievu, a Seattle-based company that sells cameras that can be worn on an officer’s chest to record their interactions. Cheverly officers began using the cameras earlier this month while New Carrollton officers implemented the cameras six months ago.
