LAS VEGAS -- Metro police officers will be getting a new companion in the coming months as the department is inching closer to fitting its officers with body-mounted cameras.

From fatal police shootings to routine traffic stops.

News 3's Mackenzie Warren shows us how a camera can protect people on both sides of the badge.

There is no question that when a police officer is wearing a camera, they're more conscious about what they say and and if the public knows they're being taped their behavior also might change for the better.

Beyond that it's a unique way to document "what happened."

Metro police has been testing these body cameras for months and now they're giving News 3 an exclusive look into how it's going and how the cameras may operate.
