The issue of police body cameras isn't a new one, but it's now a priority for many departments because of the Michael Brown case.
On a day meant for touting lower crime numbers in his city, Chicago Police Department Superintendent Garry McCarthy also laid out the questions being worked out for police body cameras.
The roll out, he says, will be gradual, and on a volunteer basis.
In the week since the Ferguson grand jury decision, body cameras for cops quickly came into focus. The White House is now pledging $263 million to help local departments gear up, just as President Obama weighs an executive order to track weapons and gear the federal government sends to police departments nationwide.
Those cameras may find their way into the CPD even faster, because of a new report from the United Nations.
It specifically pointed to Chicago's police department.
The United Nations committee said it was "concerned at the reported current police violence in Chicago, especially against African -American and Latino young people."
