Can Body Cameras 'Civilize' Police Encounters?

Can Body Cameras 'Civilize' Police Encounters? | Policing news | Scoop.it
Police in Ferguson, Mo., started wearing video cameras this week. What effect do they have on behavior? A criminologist reviews the (preliminary) evidence.
steve batchelder's insight:

Interesting article via @bluelightinfo.


When will this become the norm and at what point will officers actions be recorded for the whole time they are on duty.


If it left to an officer to decide whether or not to record an incident, any unrecorded encounters that have outcomes that may be controversial will soon become rich feeding grounds for anyone wishing to dispute an officers evidence/undermine the police.


Cases will be won or lost on officers being able to justify why they did not choose to record a certain encounter, especially those that start innocently enough but then rapidly deteriorate.
