Arizona law enforcement body camera survey

In an ongoing project with Cronkite News, I helped build a database of law enforcement agencies using body cameras in Arizona as of spring 2015. Of the 133 agencies surveyed, 48 use body-worn cameras on a regular basis. The following map shows trends in camera brands (Taser AXON is the most popular) and lists the year each agency began using the technology. It is my hope that Cronkite News use this data to begin building more in-depth storytelling and data visualization regarding body camera use and police-related incidents.
