How to Deploy Body Cams Properly

“To date, we know of no state government or local police department body camera policy that checks all the right boxes. For example, Seattle’s pilot program has strong rules governing when body cameras should be used, but it falls short in allowing police officers to review video footage before filing reports, which undermines investigations into police misconduct in many ways. The Seattle program also lacks disciplinary measures for officers who violate the rules. ”
