QUINCY, Fla. (WTXL) — Quincy Police officers will now be recording their encounters with citizens via worn body cameras.

On Monday, Quincy Police officers began using body worn cameras while working.

"Like hundreds of other agencies across the country QPD hope that by using cameras it will increase officer safety and also increase crime scene evidence," the department wrote in a release sent Tuesday. "So, if you encounter a Quincy Police Officer on a traffic stop or in some other official police investigation, remember the officer will be using a video camera to record the encounter."
