Police body cameras always on, but not necessarily recording

LAWRENCE, Kan. — Law enforcement at the University of Kansas is implementing new technological measures to record video of all police interactions with the public.

There’s just one small catch: Officers wearing the cameras also control what — and when — it records.

KU Police Department Capt. James Anguiano conceded that the need for officers to physically depress a button to begin capturing video opens the door for misuse and abuse.
