There are both civilians and police who say that body cameras should be allowed, enforced and encouraged.

On the other end are those still uncomfortable with their crimes being recorded and officers who think that the body cameras are excessive and
They have been proven to decrease the amount of complaints towards officers and lowering the amount of police force. Body cameras being equipped on patrol officers would make an easier way to prosecute criminals and bring justice. After the fatal shooting of Michael Brown, the use of police body cameras intensified, spreading to different departments across the country. “The use of body cameras by police officers has begun to receive a good deal of attention from police departments, lawmakers, media, and the public” (5 Ways Body Worn Cameras Have Helped Police Officers). While body cameras can be very helpful on patrols and investigations, on duty police officers should be required to equip themselves with a body camera so they have an accurate description of the suspect, which can lower the amount of unsolved cases, and provide video footage
If this trend continues it is less likely for police to be viewed in the public eye as the wrong doers. If an individual knows that the police officer is wearing the camera they are less likely to do something ignorant in order to escape getting in trouble. Even though the body cameras are not on most of the police force, I personally believe the thought of them wearing it will make citizens act more
Video and Audio recording can capture victim statements and witness accounts. Instead of self-serving hearsay, judges can get objective evidence of what happed. Behavior Body cameras can reduce police misconduct because everyone can see what transpires between officers and citizens. People tend to behave better when they know they’re being watched. Cameras can also decrease the chances of dispute between citizen and police officers.
In addition, there are opposing views. The strongest one is that guns can be used for self-defense in order to protect the rights of citizens. Adversely, controlling guns stricter does not against the right of citizens to defend themselves, but hopes that the way of self-defense could be variable and do not always rely on guns. More importantly, the stricter control over the guns could make many citizens obtain the senses of security and lead them a comfortable life. The gun should be controlled stricter in order to leading all the citizens a better
Another alternative to decrease police misconduct is through the use of body cameras which would hold officers accountable for their actions. Often, commanding officers exercise little supervision over the daily activities of their officers. Not only do officers patrol alone, but they are authorized to quickly create solutions and sanctions on the spot. This provides officers the freedom to get away with both minor and major violations to outright crimes. A tactic to prevent this from occurring is to mount body cameras on officers while on duty.
Like in schools there are police officers with weapons making children and teachers safer than ever, To be able to deal with other threats with guns such as snipers or any dangerous act being caused by a human or animal. people could help by supporting police officers to keep their guns instead of taking them away like some people want and most of the people who wants police officers are criminals, but they don't have a say in it.

Recently Police Departments have been using these such body cameras and have seen significant results. Although some people may not like body cams, their benefits are too important to ignore. There has been many citizens that have complained about the use of body cameras. Police Officers have commented that these body cameras invade unwanted personal privacy. Some Police Officers believe that body cameras will not help decrease force by Police Officers because a
In a modern society we have rules and laws that keep us safe that are pretty easy to follow. Laws such as don’t commit murder, don’t kidnap, don’t illegally drink, do drugs, or steal other people’s property, and plenty more, to keep us safe and out of harm. Some punishments for failing to follow these laws are things like jail time, prison time, restriction from certain things, and possibly even death. However, rules in The Giver are harder to follow from our point of view. “They have rules like public apologies are required” (Lowry 3), “two children, one male, and one female per family unit” (Lowry 8), “children can’t ride bikes before they are nine” (Lowry 13), “bragging, rudeness, and asking questions are against everything they know” (Lowry 27), “and stirrings must be reported for treatment” (Lowry 37), “just to name a few.” “He remembered the cheerful little voice calling out “I want my snack!” the other threes, including jonas, had laughed nervously.
I understand that the practice of the broken window theory may not actually reduce crime, but I do believe there is a benefit. The benefit is the perception of safety. Although statistical, there may be little to no impact on crime, for citizen to feel safer and to have a better relationship with their law enforcement officers, is definitely beneficial. Looking at this from my perspective, I believe if I was to feel safer and have more confidence in the officers patrolling my neighborhood, that would be a great improvement from having the same crime rate, but feeling unsafe and not having confidence in the officers patrolling my neighborhood. Additionally, I thinks we would all agree that there is a benefit to have our neighborhood looking
Sometimes people can see the camera and know they are being recorded, so they won’t act foolishly. If the people are aware they are being recorded, then they won’t do anything bad because they know that there is proof of it. Proof shows the absolute truth. When police officers have the proof, being innocent or guilty wouldn’t be a question. Finally, police body cameras can help remind police officers the sequence of events that happened for their statements.
