According to an article by Los Angeles radio station KPCC, L.A. police will begin using on-body video cameras as soon as Summer 2014. The small cameras, mounted to the collars of the officers’ shirts, will capture a view of what the officers see.
As reported in the article, such video could have a dramatic effect on criminal cases. A camera recording video and sound has the potential to eliminate the “I said, he said” nature of police activity. The presence of cameras also has a way of putting everyone on their best behavior, which could save lives of both police officers and citizens.
