US Customs and Border Protection Test Body Cams to Reduce Use of Force

US Customs and Border Protection Test Body Cams to Reduce Use of ForceIt’s the largest police force in the country with 60,000 employees, and now U.S. Customs and Border Protection is the first to conduct a massive experiment to test the use of body cameras along the United States borders. Agents have been testing different models of body cameras as part of an initiative to reduce use of force — and it’s these cameras that are the most controversial part of a new 18-month retraining program ordered by reform Commissioner Gil Kerlikowske. The training program and body cameras were the former Seattle police chief’s response to a series of “use of force” complaints that came before he took office, from the beating and tazing of Antonio Hernandez Rojas – which in this case the U.S. Justice Dept. ruled the agents broke no laws and did not prosecute — to the shooting of 16-year-old Jose Rodriguez, who was standing on the Mexican side at the time accused of rock throwing but who witnesses say was an innocent bystander.
