U.S. Customs and Border Protection is outfitting a select number of agents with body cameras to test the technology in field.

Officials said Friday that roughly three dozen volunteers would test the body cameras for 90 days in Florida, Michigan, New Mexico, Texas and Washington state, The Associated Press reported.

Benjamine Huffman, deputy chief of the Border Patrol’s El Paso, Texas, sector, said the cameras “will allow the American public to look over our shoulder while we’re working,” AP reported.

After the tests are complete, officials will analyze any unforeseen legal issues or privacy concerns that come up, U.S. Border Patrol Assistant Chief Donna Twyford said, AP reported.
