Shreveport Police will be getting some new body cameras next week. Police Chief Alan Crump says that he's excited to be able to outfit more officers with the technology and hopes that the body cameras will help the department gain the public's trust through transparency.

The cameras will be assigned to units that are more likely to have encounters outside the range of dash cams. For some specialized units, the new cameras will be upgrades to those they use now.
