Yes. It will protect the police from false charges and also protect the citizens from an abusive cop. 3 years ago from a Republican in Burlington, VT
No, but the officer should assume responsibility in the case of disputes where the camera would have resolved the dispute. 3 years ago from a Republican in Houston, TX
If the budget allows for it. It protects the officers from disingenuous claims of trouble makers. 3 years ago from a Republican in Minneapolis, MN
It should only be turned on during a crime investigation. We do not need to know what a cop thinks in private. 3 years ago from a Republican in Potwin, KS
No, but they should be punished for overly aggressive gestapo-like actions. They are not the law and not the jury and not the sentencer, even if many of them seem to fancy themselves to be. 3 years ago from a Republican in Washington, DC
No, but internal affairs departments should continue to monitor abuse of power by police officers. 3 years ago from a Republican in Charlotte, NC
No, not all police officers need to wear body cameras. It should be up to each police department. Let's not assume that all police officers need cameras watching their every move. 3 years ago from a Republican in Worth, IL
No, but they should be allowed to, if they want. 3 years ago from a Republican in Angier, NC
Yes, but only in extremely dangerous neighborhoods. 3 years ago from a Republican in Princeton Junction, NJ
No, but should be afforded the opportunity to wear one for their own protection if they desire to. 3 years ago from a Republican in Killeen, TX
Speaking from a former police officer's child's point of view, I think it would be very problematic mostly because it could be a liability to both the police officer and to the person within the subject. 3 years ago from a Republican in Young Harris, GA
