OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma City Police Department will wear body cameras made by WatchGuard Video.

The city council approved the purchase of 100 cameras for officers and five more for spares.

Officers have spent the last month or so testing three different models of body cameras.

Each product was worn for two weeks at a time.

The 100 cameras are part of a one-year pilot program.

The program is expected to cost around $400,000.
