The Rising Trend: Police Departments that Are Embracing Body Cameras

Every day, people across the United States deal with the ramifications, both positive and negative, of interactions with law enforcement officers. Understanding these interactions and ensuring accountability is vital to improving the trust between the general public and law enforcement agencies. This understanding is probably why there's a rising trend of police departments that are adopting body cameras, pieces of technology that offer an objective record of policing activities. So, let's take a look at a selection of these departments that are trailblazing in the adoption of this transparency-enabling tech.

The Distinct Strategy of Axon in Rialto, CA

Rialto Police Department was one of the earliest adopters of body cameras in America, way back in 2012. This adoption was facilitated by former police chief Tony Farrar (now COO of Axon), who saw the value in documenting interactions between citizens and law enforcement. Today, all 115 officers on the force are equipped with body cameras. It is worth noting that since the implementation, there has been a notable decrease in complaints against officers and in the use of force incidents.

Chicago, Staging the Spotlight in Illinois

As a response to several high-profile cases, including the shooting death of Laquan McDonald, the Chicago Police Department decided to employ body cameras. The city announced in 2020 that it had fulfilled its goal of equipping all officers responding to service calls with body cameras. A milestone that demonstrated the city's commitment to transparency and accountability when it comes to police-citizen interactions.

New York City, Illuminating Progress in the Empire State

The New York Police Department, the largest police force in the United States, has not been left behind in this trend. Following a pilot program in 2014, the department announced in 2017 that it had embarked on a plan to equip all 23,000 patrol officers with body cameras. The results were encouraging, with the department reporting a decrease in complaints and incidents of police force following full implementation.

Charlotte Mecklenburg – A Case Study Worth the Attention in NC

In North Carolina, the Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department has been committed to using body cameras since 2015. All patrol officers in the department are required to use a body camera, which has helped significantly to reduce the number of complaints against police officers. In fact, the department recently reported a 90% compliance rate with its body camera policy.

Metropolitan Police Department – Groundbreaking Efforts in the Nation's Capital

Metropolitan Police Department in Washington D.C., though introduced its Body-Worn Camera program in 2014, was embroiled in a privacy-versus-transparency debate. However, over time, the department refined its body camera approach resulting in a 2017 study by The Lab @ DC suggesting that the use of body-cameras could indeed have positive effects on citizen-police interactions.

This list provides a cross-section of policing organizations from various corners of the United States, but it's worth noting that many other departments, in both rural and urban settings, are adopting body cameras. As society continues to grapple with the complexities of law enforcement, technological aids like the body camera provide one means of facilitating meaningful dialogue and change. They are far from a panacea, but they offer a path towards a more accountable future.
