  • Insight – Police body cameras carry risks without firm rules

    Reuters - 12/10/2014

    Civil rights activists and some police chiefs are warning that the Obama administration’s proposal to help local police departments buy 50,000 body cameras must come with firm rules on how to use the equipment.

    They say that without proper oversight to address potential misuse, such as when police turn off their cameras during brutal acts, the wide deployment of the equipment could undermine efforts to build trust in police departments across the country.
