Nassau Town to Equip Police with Body Cameras

The Nassau County acting district attorney and the Freeport Police Department announced that all officers will soon be equipped with body cameras, while all marked cars and some unmarked cars will be equipped with dash mounted cameras. This means that nearly all traffic stops in Freeport will now be recorded. The announcement came just days before the shooting of an unarmed man in South Carolina which was captured on camera by a civilian. What do you think of this idea? Should all other Nassau and Suffolk towns follow suit? Or is there a reason police should not be recorded during traffic stops?
