Basic Tips for Evaluating a Body Worn Camera Solution

Posted by Tyler Richard on Jun 29, 2017 6:54:00 PM

The benefits of body worn camera (BWC) recordings are numerous. Body worn cameras are essentially another set of eyes on the scene that record the actions that unfold in front of a police officer. Most officers have experienced individuals who behave in an unruly and offensive manner in the streets and then present a very different face in court. This can sometimes undermine a case for an arrest that stems from the suspect's behavior in the field. The use of a body camera can show exactly what the officer was dealing with at the time of arrest. These cameras can also protect officers from civilian lawsuits.
