New York state troopers are now expected to be equipped with body cameras by the fall.
The move is part of Gov. Andrew Cuomo's order from last year mandating all troopers wear body cams.
The rollout process begins this month in Albany.
Troopers must record video in a number of situations, including when using force or making an arrest.
Cameras will automatically roll anytime a trooper un-holsters their firearm or stun gun.
