Albany, N.Y. - New York State is rolling out their first body cams to State Troopers today, starting with Troop G in Latham
The requirement for Troopers to wear body-worn cameras is the result of legislation that was signed into law last June
It's expected that all State Troopers will be wearing body cams by the end of the year.
Governor Cuomo said in a statement, "At this highly critical time for the relationship between police and the communities they serve across the state, I am proud that we are implementing this program as police agencies statewide do the important work of reimagining their work and repairing trust in the criminal justice system."
