LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Louisville Metro Police Chief Steve Conrad says every police officer will be equipped with a body camera by the end of the year.

Multiple media outlets report that Conrad outlined his plans Tuesday during a public forum at Central High School.

Conrad says the department is ready to equip more officers with body cameras, now that a six-week pilot program has concluded and officials have solved a few technology glitches.

Conrad says officers in the 2nd Division, Louisville’s West End, will receive the cameras next week.

Conrad says there will be minor changes to the department’s policy, including turning off the cameras and instead taking written reports when citizens report crimes. But he says most of the practices, tried out recently by officers in the 5th Division, will remain intact.
