The Seattle police have launched a YouTube channel to post videos from cameras worn by their officers.
The department has already posted more than a dozen videos, most of them from patrols of a Martin Luther King Jr. Day protest last month. The videos are blurred and the sound muted to protect privacy.
The city announced in December that it would have 12 officers wear cameras as a test project. Calls for police body cameras increased last year after the police shootings of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, and other unarmed men.
