JEFFERSON CITY, MO (KTVI)- Lezley McSpadden will join Senator Jamilah Nasheed at a hearing to discuss the need for police-worn body cameras in Missouri. McSpadden is the mother of 18-year-old Michael Brown, the African-American teenager who was shot and killed by former Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson in 2014.

Senate Bill 628, if passed, will require officers in cities with populations more than 100,000 to wear body cameras at all times. They will also be required to activate the camera to record all contacts with citizens, from beginning to end.

More than 50 of McSpadden’s supporters are expected to attend.

The hearing will take place on February 17th at 8:15 a.m. in the Missouri Capitol.
