Do police officers like body cameras?

It’s an interesting question whether police officers like body cameras — a subject I discussed on Thursday.  Today my home town newspaper (the Salt Lake Tribune) has a long story suggesting that Utah police officers generally favor using body cameras, with some officers even paying to buy their own.  I would be interested to see whether that is generally true — probably another of many subjects involving police body cameras that needs more research.

Paul G. Cassell teaches criminal law, criminal procedure, and crime victims' rights at the S.J. Quinney College of Law at the University of Utah. He also served as a U.S. District Court Judge for the District of Utah from 2002 to 2007.
