Lots of questions and no easy answers at first Boston police body camera meeting
Boston.com - 04/25/2016
At the first of three community meetings on a body camera pilot program organized by the Boston City Council, even what seemed like should have been a simple yes or no question — should officers be able to record inside someone’s home? — led to a discussion about consent, privacy, and domestic violence issues.
“It’s not just putting cameras on a police officer,” said Jack McDevitt, a member of the task force and an associate dean of research at Northeastern University. “It’s thinking about their rights and thinking about all of our rights as the community and how does that play out and how do we balance the two.”
