COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A law enforcement relations board created by Gov. John Kasich (KAY’-sik) is developing a standard for the use of police body cameras.

The statewide standard from the Ohio Collaborative Community-Police Advisory Board will involve privacy, operations, public records and other issues.

The board announced the development of the standard Friday after hearing a presentation about body cameras by the Ohio Office of Criminal Justice Services.

Cities around Ohio have purchased body cameras for police departments or are considering them but there is no statewide requirement.

Last month the board adopted Ohio’s first statewide standards for the use of deadly force by officers.

Kasich created the panel after a series of fatal police shootings, including the November death of 12-year-old Tamir Rice in Cleveland.
