All Lincolnshire police officers kitted out with body cameras
Police in Lincolnshire will now wear body cameras while they're on the beat.
Five hundred of the cameras have been given out to all front line officers in a scheme partly funded by the Home Office.
The body cams will allow police to give exact accounts of incidents while helping them to be 'transparent and accountable' to the public, according to police chiefs.
The cameras won't record permanently but chiefs say they can be switched on by officers in line with force guidelines in situations when it is proportionate, necessary and legitimate to do so.
