New Orleans PD to begin wearing cameras on their uniforms


LINK /

quote:

New Orleans Police Superintendent Ronal Serpas says his office is buying hundreds of cameras for officers to wear on their uniforms beginning as soon as late this year.


Probably a good thing for both police and the citizenry IMO

Slippery slope. Next thing you know, they'll be carrying guns.

yup

Watched Cops Are Polite Cops

quote:

This is a really good idea. Earlier this year, a 12-month study by Cambridge University researchers revealed that when the city of Rialto, California, required its cops to wear cameras, the number of complaints filed against officers fell by 88 percent and the use of force by officers dropped by almost 60 percent. Watched cops are polite cops.

Sounds like an excellent idea... And with how mainstream and cheap the likes of GoPro are now, it makes since.

I imagine it will not only cut down on the police brutality and other malfeasance claims, but will also get rid of the bad apples quickly.

That's $300 extremely well spent.

Erosion of privacy. I understand that if you're in public you've got no expectation of privacy but if they're coming to your door....

There's definitely a big benefit with better behaved cops but there's this nagging issue of privacy for me.

fantastic idea.

Every County cop here has in-car video & audio from the radio mic that activates whenever the spinners are on.

Sadly, I think that is completely warranted in this day and age.
