PHOENIX (KGUN9-TV) - If you're traveling in west Phoenix and you encounter a police officer, the conversation might be recorded.

Maryvale Precint Police Officers are now wearing cameras as part of a test program to record their conversations with witnesses and suspects when out in the field.

The recorded conversations can be used in court.

The department will be testing the program for the next year. If successful, the program could be expanded to all officers in the city.
