MA, NH, NY and RI State Police Lag Behind Agencies Nationwide on Dashboard Camera Use

That’s because New York remains one of only five states where the primary state law enforcement agency is not equipped with dashboard cameras, according to a nationwide Associated Press survey.

Four of those states — Rhode Island, New Hampshire, New York, and Massachusetts — are in the Northeast.

Hawaii’s primary state law enforcement agency also does not have dashboard cameras, but it doesn’t have a state-level highway patrol so it has far fewer interactions with citizens.
