Canton Police Department Body Cameras

In the course of the recent protests, and on other occasions, the city of Canton has received questions regarding our policy relating to body cameras. We think it is important to let the public know that all uniformed officers in the Canton Police Department are required to wear body cameras while on duty. Cameras are continuously in operation and officers are not permitted to turn them off. For clarification, officers who are in special operations (not in uniform) are not required to wear them. The Chief and top administrative officers of the department are also not required to wear them because they are not normally on the street in public situations.
