Balancing Privacy with Safety when Using Body Cams
March 2, 2018
Hosted by Rebecca Herold
Body cameras can provide great benefit for capturing what really happens in various situations and support accountability for the actions of those wearing them. But there are also privacy risks for those in the vicinity. In July 2013, the US Department of Justice reported that less than 25%, at that time, of police departments used body cams. By 2015, 95% of large police departments reported they were either already using body cameras or had committed to doing so in the near future. Laws for body cam use are also increasing. Currently 34 US states and the District of Columbia have created laws for body cameras. Law enforcement and others are increasingly using body cams. Listeners; where do you stand on this topic? Invasion of privacy, for those interacting with the police and those in their vicinity? Or an absolutely necessary tool? Or somewhere in-between? How can we balance the safety and privacy issues? Join this episode to hear discussion of these important issues!
