Your Call: Should police wear body cameras?
Should body cameras be used in policing? On the February 4th edition of Your Call, we’ll continue our series on police, community, race, and justice with a debate about body cameras. Proponents say body cameras reduce excessive force, ensure accountability, and provide crucial evidence in the courtroom. Opponents say the cameras don’t tell the whole story, might reveal sensitive information, and are a major invasion of privacy. Do we want to be recorded 24/7? How effective are body cameras in policing? Where do you stand? It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and you.
