Florida lawmakers agreed to water down a bill Wednesday that would have required law enforcement officers to wear body cameras. Rep. Shevrin Jones’ (D-West Park) bill now allows for local law enforcement discretion.

“Those agencies who currently have body cameras…all we’re asking them to do is to put policies and procedures into place,” said Jones. “Along with that, the bill also requires those law enforcement agencies to train their personnel for the use of how to maintain, how to store, and release the body cameras’ recording data.”
