The Baltimore City State's Attorney's office released an update on its review of cases involving body-worn camera incidents.

In all, the office says 864 cases have been or could be impacted by investigations into three recent incidents involving officers appearing to turn on their cameras to re-enact the discovery of evidence in drug cases. That number also includes cases impacted by the federal indictment of eight Baltimore Police officers that were part of the department's Gun Trace Task Force.

"Public trust in the criminal justice system is crucial to the success of all prosecutions," said State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby. "We will remain vigilant in our pursuit of justice and we will continue to do our part to restore public trust and build confidence in the criminal justice system."

At least 34 of the cases being reviewed involve a person currently in custody.
