TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - Police officials in New Jersey’s capital city will use body cameras at the first of five public events.

NJ.com reports (https://bit.ly/1WDPSwc ) Trenton police officials unveiled the plans Wednesday evening in the City Council Chambers.

Under the plan, police officers beginning in June would turn on their cameras when responding to a call.

The entire encounter would be recorded, unless it has to be turned off. That footage would be kept in a cloud-based server run by the company that sold the cameras.

Footage could be kept indefinitely. Minor encounters could be purged after 90 days.

Under the plan, supervisors would regularly review the footage. Those reviews would then be audited by commanders.

The cameras would be used to train police for future situations.
