LEARN FROM BODY CAMERA PILOTS
Previous and existing global pilots show that the use of body cams can have a de-escalating effect, indirectly leads to a time-saving in the evidence and leads to a decrease in the number of complaints submitted by citizens against its users.
In addition, it is observed that images in the legal process can help, among other things, in determining the atmosphere and reconstructing an incident. Mobile camera surveillance can also lead to an increase in the professionalism of the organization by using it as learning and training purposes.
PROS AND CONS OF BODY CAMERAS
Despite these positive effects from body cameras, there are objections to both staff and citizens. Some degree of restraint is created by staff because it is unclear whether the images are used in, for example, internal investigations.
In addition, the lack of technological knowledge for some as a (too high) threshold to use the camera or the time-saving character is questioned. Although a majority of citizens do not object to the introduction of cameras, the privacy aspect is sensitive to some.
When entering the body cameras during pilots and possible expansions, a number of basic requirements have to be met. This relates among other things to the GPS location, night vision and HD picture and sound quality. In addition, the current soft- and hardware of the organization must be taken into account.
