Police officers in Ferguson, Mo. began wearing cameras attached to their uniforms on Saturday in response to the controversy about police tactics following the police shooting of an unarmed black teen, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

 

About 50 cameras were donated by two private companies, Safety Visions and Digital Ally, after the Aug. 9 shooting of Michael Brown by a Ferguson police officer, Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson told the Post-Dispatch.
