Abstract

There are few studies revolving the effects, benefits, and negatives influences of body-worn cameras. However, the purpose of this paper is to address these few studies, dissect the results, and come to a general conclusion of what purposes body-worn cameras serve in today's law enforcement, government, and the general public. The overall goal of the paper is to determine the extent and nature of nation-wide use of body-worn cameras, and what studies have found in regards to effect and influence on the community and on law enforcement.
