UNLV and the Center for Naval Analysis released the results of a study on police wearing body cameras.
From September 2014 to October 2015, body cams were placed on 200 Metro Police patrol officers, and the study tracked 200 other officers without cameras.
The results found that police wearing the body cams were less likely to use force while wearing the recording devices.
Officers wearing the cameras issued 6.8 percent more citations and made 5.2 percent more arrests than officers without cameras.
Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo said body cams are now a standard piece of equipment for patrol officers, noting that Metro has deployed 1,950 cameras.
