About five officers a shift will be equipped with the devices, which record video and audio after an officer activates the device. The video is uploaded after the officer’s shift ends.

Deputy Chief Joseph Nolan tells The Press of Atlantic City (http://bit.ly/1sWLPfj ) the department wants people to believe in the officers and the officers want the truth.

Nolan says the 20 cameras are split among three shifts. Each officer will use a camera for two weeks, then another officer will get it.

The body cameras cost about $300 each. They were paid for through a Community Development Block Grant.
