Compulsory requirement for police to wear cameras whilst on duty
This petition had 16 supporters
Between 2014-2016 approximately 35,000 complaints were record against police officers/ police forces (IPCC, 2017).
2016 saw 45 deaths in police custody or following contact with the police, with the figure being 21 so far this year (Inquest.org.UK, 2017)
High profile deaths such as that of Mark Duggan which led to national rioting where triggered by questionable police conduct.
If we have a means to accurately record and view what police do while on duty why don't we?
Cameras will 'weed out' the bad police, develop relationships between the police and communities, protect just officers in their every day work reduce complaints and can only be seen as a step forwards.
