Body cameras have been big help to suburban Phoenix police

SURPRISE, Ariz. -- Police in the town of Surprise have equipped all their patrol officers with a body-worn camera.

Surprise police initially purchased 61 cameras in August, which was enough for most of the patrol force. An additional 19 cameras in November put a camera on every patrol officer.

Police said recordings captured by the cameras will be used as evidence in investigations and ultimately in the courtroom during trial.

They said the video and sound from the cameras has been a useful tool for administrators to resolve complaints against officers.
