Body worn cameras will massively improve public trust in the police

Commenting on the Mayor of London’s announcement that body worn cameras will be rolled out to 20,000 Metropolitan Police officers, Labour’s London Assembly Policing spokesperson Joanne McCartney AM said:

“Rolling out body worn cameras could massively improve public trust in the police and help capture essential evidence but it’s vital they are used correctly.

“Both the public and officers need to understand the rules on when incidents should be recorded. The Met must also prioritise proper training to prevent misuse and ensure officers don’t unnecessarily infringe on people’s civil liberties.”
