Interim Police Chief Medaria Arradondo announced the policy change earlier this week. This comes after the shooting death of Justine Damond.

Officer Mohamed Noor fatally shot Damond after she called 911 to report a possible sexual assault outside her home on July 15. Both Noor and his partner were wearing body cameras, but they were not turned on.
