"Since the tragic events in Ferguson, Missouri in 2014, a call for the use of body worn video (BWV) cameras by police has been made. A number of police forces in the USA already use BWV and it is being piloted in various cities across Canada. Initial surveys on this subject focused on police officer views of BWV. Although a small number of public surveys have been conducted to date, none have provided a comprehensive overview of what the public thinks about BWV. Drawing on a sample of Canadian (N = 105) and American (N = 105) jury-eligible respondents, a survey was administered to provide a better understanding of what people think about BWV."
