earch Center study found that 66% percent of officers in addition to 93% citizens support the use of body cameras to record interactions with citizens. Many people are divided over the need for cops to wear body cams. Here are some pros and cons of both sides.
One of the main advantages of body cameras is that the video footage is able to be used as evidence. It’s extremely beneficial to be able to access the video footage later in court should you require. Without this footage, your case may lack a significant amount of evidence, based on the matter being litigated about. However, footage from both police body cameras and police dash cameras are very useful in courts of law. The downside, however, is that both law enforcement officers have access to the footage of body cameras used by police. The quality of the footage recorded by bodies of police cameras is another problem. It’s possible that the footage isn’t completely apparent due to police movements or lighting. But delay or blurred footage may cause confusionand be difficult to discern. syyfevbgrj.
