In 2013, approximately one-third of U.S. municipal police departments had implemented the use of body-worn cameras.2 Members of the general public also continue to embrace the technology.

Current studies suggest that body-worn cameras may offer benefits for law enforcement, but additional research is needed to more fully understand the value of the technology for the field."--Page 1.
