MANSFIELD -- Sgt. Patrick Williams said Tuesday he's confident new body cameras now worn by Mansfield patrol officers will show a side of the public many people haven't seen.

"I think what we will find is that people, if our content was digested widely, would be shocked at how people conduct themselves toward police officers and authority figures in general," said Williams, a member of the Mansfield Police Department since 2005.
