After nearly two years of fundraising, testing and negotiating policy, body cameras will be outfitted on Los Angeles police officers starting Monday morning.

Officers working the LAPD's Mission Division, which covers San Fernando Valley communities including Sylmar and Panorama City, will be the first to get their cameras, Chief Information Officer Maggie Goodrich told member of the Police Commission last week.

Officials will showcase the rollout of the technology at a news conference Monday.
