Teaching Pro-Con Debate: Police body cameras

Pro-Con Debate: Police body cameras

Police body cameras are small cameras, often worn on an officer's chest or head, with a microphone to capture sound and internal data storage to save footage for later review. Proponents of the police use of body cameras say that the cameras create transparency and accountability and reduce police - and anti-police - violence. Opponents of the police use of body cameras say that the cameras negatively affect the physical and mental health of officers by overburdening them with equipment and placing them under the stress of constant video surveillance.
