    Here is one example of live video technology for ya.



    I would think in the future, facial recognition features would help as well.

    Like the fella who doesn't want to show ID on a street stop wouldn't be a problem anymore. The camera the officer is wearing should have already identified the individual.

    We already have automatic vehicle license plate recognition up and running.


    Good stuff there, very helpful, just don't be a criminal or a crooked cop aye.

    Re: Should All Police Have to Wear Body Cameras?

    Thats pretty nice. But I recommend they install a new "dome" camera on the top that literally records EVERYTHING, with zero blind spots. Then you can use software to access a specific portion of viewing that would be readable to the conventional human eye. (turning the panoramic "dome" capture into 1 square picture as if viewed from a conventional perspective) Because the human brain wouldnt be able to comprehend 360 degrees of info so easily.

    Or use software to divvy out the "dome" camera captures into 4,5 or 6 quadrants all on 1 viewing screen.

    I guess this is cheaper and useful though. Better than just 1 dashcam which cops seem to love parking askew and not record the incident.

    Should you have to wear one for your work? If not, then why should others?

    Re: Should All Police Have to Wear Body Cameras?

    we petition the obama administration to:
    Mike Brown Law. Requires all state, county, and local police to wear a camera.

    Create a bill, sign into law, and set aside funds to require all state,county, and local police, to wear a camera. Due to the latest accounts of deadly encounters with police, We the People, petition for the Mike Brown Law. Create a bill, sign into law, and set aside funds to require all state,county, and local police, to wear a camera.The law shall be made in an effort to not only detour police misconduct(i.e. brutality, profiling, abuse of power), but to ensure that all police are following procedure, and to remove all question, from normally questionable police encounters. As well, as help to hold all parties within a police investigation, accountable for their actions.

    .....A camera is not bias. Unedited, raw video cannot lie. If a suspect fights or is compliant will be on the video. This will leave very little for the arguments of if it was necessary force or not.

    Many departments would love to use these cameras but budget issues prevent them from buying. By signing this executive order the president is mandating departments buy them now.

    The order does have language in it to open up grant monies for police chief’s to access to make some initial purchases of body cameras. Once the initial grant dollars are gone the White House expects police chiefs to get creative with their budgets to make sure all officers have individual cameras by next year.....

    But if the cops were wearing them, they'be capturing the actions of the suspect as well.

    Neither one is being filmed or can be held accountable on video *before contact.* (unless there are other cameras on site, of course.)

    You can't be ****ing serious...

    Because police are authorized to use up to and including deadly force against citizens of the United States of America and no other job entails that. That's why.

    Straw Man... 99% of the population is not out forcing citizens to comply to their orders...
