 ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP)- A Maryland panel that is working on developing best practices for using police body cameras has held its first meeting.
    
Frederic Smalkin, a retired federal judge who is the chairman of the commission, said Tuesday the panel's goal is to work with a cross section of interests to put forward best practices to be considered for regulations.
    
The 22-member panel is scheduled to submit recommendations by Oct. 1. The Maryland Police Training Commission is tasked with putting together regulations by Jan. 1.
    
Panel members already have a working document before them that is based on model policies where body cameras are used.
    
The use of body cameras won't be mandatory for police in Maryland. The statewide policy will only apply to departments where cameras are used.
