Impact of Police Use of Body-worn Cameras Student’s Name Institution Professor’s Name Course Date Introduction The use of body cameras and excessive force on suspected criminals has raised serious concern among citizens in the recent past. As a matter of fact the police has repeatedly used the force unnecessarily to compel the culprits to obey their orders and even used the body cameras to scan them in instances of suspicion of the victims being armed. These usually result in resistance injuries and eventually complaints from the citizens. Use of excessive force and body cameras are against human rights to privacy and fair treatment. It is therefore important that the police handle civilians in more appropriate manner. This paper will evaluate the impact of police use of body cameras on citizen complaints and use of force in a enough to give valid results to enable the researcher generates a concrete conclusion. Conclusion A corrupted and brutal police force ensures that the public confidence is destroyed. One of the ways that police behavior can be destroyed is the use of the body-worn cameras. Evidence from previous researchers suggests mixed reaction on whether the body-worn cameras increase or decrease police brutality. A brutal police force cannot effectively maintain law and order in an area. References Ariel B. (2016). Police body cameras in large police departments. J. Crim. L. & Criminology 106 729. Bianchi J.
