Police body cameras reduced Use-Of-Force by half in Rialto, Calif.

"A yearlong pilot program in Rialto, Calif., ended in February, and
researchers there found the number of use-of-force incidents dropped by
half. The city of about 100,000 also had significantly fewer public
complaints about police, dropping from 28 to just three."

NYC officials cool to idea of police body cameras -

Police officers around the country have been able to protect
themselves against citizen complaints by wearing tiny body cameras, but a
federal judge's plan to force some New York officers to start wearing
the devices has angered the city's mayor and police unions.Mayor
Michael Bloomberg criticized the cameras unnecessary for the
35,000-officer department, while police reform advocates have cautiously
agreed to the idea in theory _ with some caveats. And people on both
sides have raised privacy concerns in a city that already has thousands
of public and private cameras recording people."It needs to be
examined further, which is why a test program is the right idea," said
Baher Azmy, legal director of the civil liberties group Center for
Constitutional Rights.U.S. District Judge Shira Scheindlin
ordered a pilot program of the cameras and other major reforms to the
New York Police Department's stop-and-frisk policy this week, after she
found the NYPD intentionally discriminated against minorities.Bloomberg called the cameras no real solution and vowed to appeal, which likely means no changes are imminent.

"It would be a nightmare," he said. "Cameras don't exactly work that way.
Camera on the lapel or the hat of the police officer _ he's turned the
right way, he didn't turn the right way, `my God, he deliberately did
it.'"There have been nearly 5 million stops in the past decade,
mostly black and Hispanic men. About half the people who are stopped are
subject only to questioning; others have a bag or backpack searched,
and sometimes police conduct a full pat-down.
