Body Cameras for Police Officers
Organized by: Mayor Chris Brown
The Police Foundation published "Self-Awareness to Being Watched and Socially-Desirable Behavior: A Field Experiment on the Effect of Body-worn Cameras on Police Use-of-Force" which explored the interactions between uniformed personnnel and the civilain population when body cameras are used. This study found more than a 50% reduction in the total number of incidents of use-of-force and more than a 90% reduction in complaints against officers.
When funded, this initiative will provide police departments across the country with Body Cameras. Most police departments have no or very limited experience with body cameras and their benefits.
It's time to promote transparency and public safety.
"I am simply not willing to gamble with a single life, or the wrongful accusation of upstanding police officers." - Mayor Chris Brown (August 15, 2014)
WE DESERVE THIS!!!
