The Boston Police Patrolmen's Association's (BPPA) lawsuit against the city hit the headlines this week as the organization asked for an injunction halting the city's body-worn camera pilot program.

The ACLU of Massachusetts believes that with strong policies, body-worn cameras can protect those on both sides of the badge. That is part of why we submitted an amicus brief and are speaking out in opposition of the BPPA's attempts to block the immediate implementation of the body camera program. Bostonians have waited long enough for body cameras and the police accountability that comes with them.
