The Boston City Council will tackle the use of new technology in law enforcement, including surveillance drones and body cameras in a Tuesday hearing, according to the Boston Globe.

The hearing takes place in anticipation of a Northeastern University report on the BPD pilot program testing body-worn cameras, and amid citizen concerns over the deployment of new technology without community input.

Boston Police Commissioner William Evans has that emerging technologies such as drones and body cameras are “all about public safety,” and that these new tools can make the department more efficient.
