The Nassau County Police Department will launch a pilot program on Monday to install dashboard cameras on patrol vehicles and require officers to wear body cameras that capture their interaction with the public.
Police officials disclosed the program -- part of an 18-month overhaul of the department's ethics policies -- shortly after Democrats in the county legislature announced a bill to create a similar pilot program. The department's initiative comes after the alleged beating of Kyle Howell, 20, of Westbury, by two Nassau police officers during an April 25 traffic stop that was caught on a nearby store's surveillance camera.
