BOSTON (AP) — A judge has rejected a request by Boston's largest police union to delay the start of a body camera program, paving the way for 100 officers to begin wearing the cameras next week.
The program has been delayed repeatedly while the Boston Police Patrolmen's Association negotiated with the city over the terms of an agreement for 100 officers to wear cameras for the six-month pilot program.
An agreement reached in July called for officers to volunteer. But when none did, Police Commissioner William Evans ordered a cross-section of officers around the city to wear them.
The union argued that Evans had violated the agreement. But Judge Douglas Wilkins ruled Friday that Evans has the authority to order officers to wear cameras.
A police spokesman says the program will begin Monday.
