If there is still an argument against body cameras for police officers….Darlington Police Department’s success can put an end to that.
All of their police officers a required to wear body cameras… the video cannot be altered or deleted without notification….and the results speak for themselves.
The cameras have stopped interactions between citizens and police from escalating…have helped police be able to identify suspects who have gotten away and helped in the gathering of evidence.
In the heat of the moment a lot can go wrong or be remembered incorrectly. This technology corrects those inconsistencies.
Consider This: With all of the unrest, injustice, and lack of trust across the country it is great to see a local police department leading the way in doing things the right way.
