Border patrol agents holding off on wearing body cameras

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The nation’s largest law enforcement agency will not, at least for now, require its agents to wear body cameras.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection staff concluded the cost is one of the reasons for the decision.

But also, the internal report said the cameras might be a distraction while agents are doing their jobs.

The findings are subject to approval by the agency’s commissioner and do not rule out the use of body cameras in the future.
