Interactive video lesson plan for: Understanding Body Cameras in Law Enforcement

Activity overview:

Video recording systems are increasingly used by law enforcement agencies across the country. Many people support body cameras as a mechanism of transparency: they can help protect people’s civil rights. Body cameras also benefit police officers who may be wrongly accused of misconduct or abuse of force.

However, critics claim more evidence is needed before assuming any of these benefits exist.

On Jan. 26, 2017, a panel of experts discussed the benefits and drawbacks of the use of body cameras in law enforcement.

* Jennifer Fratello, Policy Director, Office of the Independent Monitor, City of Denver
* Sergeant G. Michael Vogler, Denver Police Department
* Jason Mollendor, Commander of Investigations and Community Relations, Auraria Police Department
* Denise Maes, Public Policy Director, ACLU of Colorado

The panel was moderated by Professor Mary Dodge, CU Denver School of Public Affairs.
