Toronto Police say they will begin using body-worn cameras this week.
Front-line officers in 31 Division will wear the cameras when interacting with the public.
Police say that the cameras will be used when an officer arrives at a call for service.
The camera will also be activated when an officer begins an investigation or interviews members of the public.
Chief James Ramer says that the body-worn cameras are a tool police can use to “create trust and legitimacy” with the public.
“This technology provides an independent, bias-free account of our interactions and reinforces our commitment to show communities they can feel safe and secure to enjoy their daily lives with the police,” he said in a statement.
The Toronto Police Services Board approved the use of body-worn cameras on Aug. 18.
The force will have 2,350 body-worn camera when the program is completely rolled out.
