GREENBURGH, N. Y. -- Greenburgh police say they will be the first police agency in Westchester to use body cameras, according to News 12 Westchester , but they join a growing number of departments nationwide to use the new technology.

Town Supervisor Paul Feiner said the department tested cameras in 2015, and has now ordered 60 cameras for officers, according to CBS New York. Officials expect all officers to have a body camera by the end of the year, News 12 Westchester reports.

Police departments nationwide have been considering the use of body cameras following police incidents in New York, Chicago, Baltimore and other cities. Chicago police announced last year that they'll start using body cameras and Connecticut lawmakers are considering more state aid for police departments to use the technology.
