Police Body-Worn Cameras
Lessons from the Early Adopters
Early users cite numerous practical applications and benefits from having law enforcement officers wear cameras, including:
• Documenting evidence. Cameras provide evidentiary benefits, including expedited resolution of citizen complaints and lawsuits.
• Officer training. With capture of in-the-moment officer behavior, video presents excellent training and coaching opportunities for how best to handle an incident.
• Preventing and resolving complaints brought by members of the public. Improvements have been shown in both police and citizen behavior when cameras are worn in a visible location.
• Strengthening police accountability. Cameras provide transparency, which can improve police accountability and performance.
