Training is set to begin for a number of Boston Police officers strapped with body cameras.
The Boston Herald reports that officers in five police districts and the gang unit will have body cameras on them for a two-day training session.
It comes as the city pushes ahead to roll out a pilot program next month.
The six-month trial will be with 100 officers. The program is expected to roll out the first week of September.
It was initially a voluntary program, but after no officers stepped forward, Police Commissioner William Evans randomly assigned the cameras to officers.
According to reports, 55-percent of the participating officers are white, 29-percent are black, 13-percent are Hispanic and 3-percent are Asian.
Eighty-seven-percent of the officers are men.
The herald also reports that the city has agreed to pay $500 to the officers who complete the six-month program.
Commissioner Evans throughout this process has said this is the direction the department is going unless a court stops them.
