  • Walsh says city will begin phasing in 400 police body cameras

    Boston Globe - 08/02/2018

    “The findings of the randomized controlled trial suggest that the placement of body worn cameras on Boston Police officers generate small but meaningful benefits to the civility of police-citizen civilian encounters,” said Braga, the Northeastern University researcher. “The study finds that officers wearing cameras received fewer citizen complaints and generated fewer use of force reports relative to officers who did not wear cameras. The presence of the cameras seem to de-escalate the potential for confrontations between police and citizens.”
