This webinar presented research findings on the impacts of body worn cameras from several selected studies. Early research studies demonstrated that BWCs could generate reductions in both citizen complaints and police use of force. Other studies have shown BWCs can enhance prosecution outcomes and that the technology is supported by both police officers and citizens. Though recent research has had mixed findings on BWC effects on use of force, complaints, and other outcomes, the body of literature on BWCs still characterizes their effect as largely positive, and ongoing research will play an important role in the technology’s continued diffusion.
