“I have advocated for body worn cameras since the fall of 2012 because I have always believed that they will help build confidence between law enforcement and our residents, as well as reduce the number of frivolous complaints against our officers,” Gimenez said in a statement. “I remain committed to using this technology to enhance the safety of our 2.6 million residents and the Miami-Dade police officers who protect our County.”
