  • The next fight after body cameras for Evans: Name tags

    Boston Globe - 09/23/2016

    “Most police departments require officers to wear a name tag, some with badge numbers,” said Peter K. Manning, professor of criminology and criminal justice at Northeastern University.

    Manning said name tags make it easier for the public to identify officers and raise questions about an incident.
