Police And The Video Record

ACLU of Washington

Police are under scrutiny like never before, thanks to incidents like the shooting of an unarmed man by police in Ferguson, Missouri last year. 

Some--clearly not all--questions can be resolved by keeping better records of police activities. 

That's where body cameras come in, giving police and the public video images of encounters in the field. 

The police in theCity of Talent have been using the cameras for a while now. 

Chief Mike Moran joins us to talk about their uses, and their effectiveness.
