Police officers wear what appear to be body cameras as they hold the line against protesters gathered at the police station during a rally in Ferguson, Mo. on Saturday. / AP/Huy Mach, St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Police officers in Ferguson, Mo. began wearing cameras attached to their uniforms on Saturday in response to the controversy about police tactics following the police shooting of an unarmed black teen, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

About 50 cameras were donated by two private companies, Safety Visions and Digital Ally, after the Aug. 9 shooting of Michael Brown by a Ferguson police officer, Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson told the Post-Dispatch.

The devices were worn by officers who were watching marchers protest the Brown shooting, Saturday.

Jackson told the Post-Dispatch that officers, "are really enjoying using them."

Other police departments in the St. Louis area are planning to start using wearable cameras, the Post-Dispatch says.
