Mandate Uniform Cameras For All Police Departments in the United States

This petition had 248 supporters

The DOJ has announced it is reviewing its guidelines for police departments on use of deadly force. Recent events in Ferguson, MO - in addition to other police-related events around the nation- demand that full accountability be instituted into modern policework and that uniform cameras be mandated for all sworn officers while on duty. Uniform cameras not only assist and protect honest officers from unfounded allegations, but the unbiased, real time accountability they produce provides a tempering effect on potentially abusive behaviors. There is no reason any honest, law abiding police officer should oppose uniform cameras, yet police unions continue to do so. We request that the Department of Justice issue guidelines that mandate- in no uncertain terms- every police department in the United States that sends armed officers into our communities be fully accountable via the modern technology of wearable, tamper-proof body cameras. It is time to reconcille police accountability in the context of 21st Century technological capacities.
