However, I also believe those officers should not wear cameras because their actions could be "staged." To clarify, when I know my teacher is looking over my shoulder watching me work, I automatically make myself seem like I am on task (i.e., silently, focussing on work despite being on task, etc.) These simple "corrective actions" could be seen by officers on duty. Not only might the camera heighten their focus on thinking and their surrounding senses, but the camera may also lead to their lack of judgment while focusing too hard on seeming to be "perfect" for those who might watch later.
Body-Cameras for police seem good in theory. However, there are too many liability issues with police officers having cameras. One, if there is something that is missed, is it the officers fault? Will he or she be charged? As there are hundreds of hours of footage, who would monitor all of it?
