Oklahoma City police, union reach agreement on body cameras

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma City police will again wear body cameras under an agreement announced Tuesday between the department and the Fraternal Order of Police.

Officials say that officers are to turn on the cameras during voluntary contact with people in public, before detaining someone or using force, before getting out of their patrol car on high-priority calls, during pursuits or sobriety tests and when asked by a supervisor.

The cameras are to be off during interviews with victims or witnesses, when a person has a reasonable expectation of privacy and in a healthcare facility.

Police were in the midst of a pilot program when an arbitrator suspended camera use in June because the department didn't negotiate camera use with the FOP.

Department and union officials say they support using the body cameras.
