Feb 17, 2015

Next week, Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake’s working group on police body cameras will release its findings on the technology's risks and benefits. We hear from David Rocah, senior staff attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union of Maryland and a member of mayor’s task force, on privacy concerns associated with body cameras and their potential to reduce police brutality. Plus: Justin Ready, assistant professor in the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice at Arizona State University and author of a study examining the use of body cameras by the Mesa Police Department.
