Ultimately, having body cameras is important because they will help show what really happens during an altercation. A police officer has to be trustworthy at all times even without the use of body cameras, but they will help protect his reputation. My opposition believes that using body cameras invades the privacy of police officers. Although police officers deserve privacy, the public should know what is going on. So many unsolved crimes are happening that body cameras will be a big help to the people.
These men and women are responsible for the safety and wellbeing of the community they protect and serve. Police officers are meant to enforce the law, but why in some cases, does the law not adhere to them? With that being said, police officers need to be held accountable for such intolerable acts and need to be shown some sort of punishment because too many innocent men, women, and even kids are paying the price for the officers’ mistakes. As a way to try to prevent police brutalities and misconduct, body-worn cameras have been issued to document the behavior of police officers. This might have sounded like a good idea to stop police brutality, but in reality it had little effect and simply publicized the fact that police are abusing their power.

The actions of the peaceful demonstrators were not the cause of the looters and violence that occurred later. The looting and violence came from people that were looking to incite these types of actions in order to be destructive and for personal gain. I feel that police should respond to civil disobedience by show of force. The biggest part of show of force is officer presence. The police must be well trained and capable of handling multiple contingencies that come along with civil disobedience.
Police Personality Joe (Ty) Trail Final Paper CRJ 451 Professor Barthe 12/10/2014 Altogether, there are a vast number of jobs whether it is a lawyer, teacher and doctor that many people inspire to be. For every job, each person develops distinctive qualities in order to adapt and respond in their environment.

The problem of police brutality is rooted in the police system, along with the police officers themselves. Some police officers are not able to adequately perform the duties of their job, because of pre-existing prejudice or psychological factors. However, all of the blame cannot be put on the police officers, the police system is not set up to prevent officers from committing offenses, it can be argued that it can be the reason they are committed. One cause of the problem of police brutality is the police officers themselves. Some police officers have been known to put their prejudice in front of their responsibility to protect and serve.
Police brutality is a very serious issue and there are ways to resolve the issue. One might say, "Well cops have nothing to hide so it shouldn 't be a big problem for them to have the cameras right?" But regardless of the person who says that, police are humans too. Body cameras in policing will improve the accountability of each officer because people behave differently when they know they are being watched and police should feel the same way. The first reason why police should wear body cameras is because when police use the camera, the camera will
As such, the public should have more sway in the decision making process for proper punishment for the officers in question. Furthermore, the details of the investigation should be made public so that the law enforcement agency employing the offender cannot pull punches in regards to their punishment. In effect this would lower the chances of negative police deviance as there would be no room for making a horrendous decision that affects the life of another individual. This is not to mention the fact that such a public disgrace goes beyond the slap on the wrist that the agency usually attempts to use. It would single out the offender and keep the agencies public face intact as opposed to giving every officer a bad name as a result of a few bad

However, Anderson refuses to neglect the truth: they are the villains. Slamming any pre-existing admirable outlook readers may have had, Anderson inquires, based on his observations, “the authorities, particularly the police, paid scant attention and sometimes abused the victims themselves” (Anderson, 27). Philadelphia is notorious for its high crime rate, marking the police as almost a necessity to the function of everyday life. However, due to the mistreatment of citizens, people began to refer to the police as “ineffective” and “unworthy of trust.” The safeness of an area is key to the number of individuals using that public space, ultimately deeming the police a negative factor. In addition to the negative safety element, policemen also partake in plain acts of racism.

COATIVE POLICING While systems and punishments are strong in most of the department, the community is not well connected. Coative policing involves the public to be part of their police station. Bringing the community to participate in the police work has inherent value to ring crime down.
Controlling corruption has to come from both the police department and the assistance and support of local community members. Community members should be educated about the negative effects of corruption within the police agency and that offering money to change a decision is the most common form of police corruption.

Corruption can take place at any level in the police department, from the patrol officer, to the chief of police. Controlling begins with the chief of police and his attitude.
When a non law abiding citizen commits a crime, we the people of the community wants to see some actions taken by the law enforcement officers. When the people see such action being taken and the drug and violence comes to a low, the people feel a little safer in the community in which they live in. However, if the police officer does their part and arrest these destruction law offenders, but the court system has a different approach in the crimes that are being committed in our neighborhoods, why ask the people to work along side with the law enforcement officers? The “get tough” approach on crime has pros and cons to mandatory and minimum sentencing. The courts have different ways of handling the sentencing when a non-law abiding citizen
Officers also know the fact that they are being watched so they can be more careful on how they arrest/ take down a person. This gives a positive point of view to both citizens and police officers. To the citizens that do not enjoy all this police brutality will get more of an advantage because with all these body cameras on officers not all will be harsh on purpose. Many of the officers do say it is true that many do take advantage of victims because they know they have the power to do what they want. In this article Swinny the author is not one to judge through anything but does also believe this will benefit many officers.
