U.S. Customs and Border Protection says it's still deciding if agents will be required to wear body cameras.
Officials have released a year-long study into if the cameras could actually work. The answer is a bit complicated.
The agency's commissioner has supported the idea of body cameras, citing an event from last year where surveillance footage helped clear a border agent who was accused of pulling a gun on a Boy Scout. (Video via U.S. Customs and Border Protection)
