COLUMBUS (WCMH) — Starting Tuesday, 30 Columbus Police Officers will be wearing body cameras during a 10-day test phase.

According to the Columbus Division of Police, the 30 volunteer officers will be issued one of six different body cameras for review and feedback.

The officers are in various parts of the city on different patrol assignments so the camera models can be compared.
