Report Urges Body Cameras for All Toronto Police Officers

The Toronto Police Service (TPS) released a report yesterday detailing the results of a pilot project that saw 85 officers wearing body cameras.  According to the report “while the technology used did not meet all of the Service’s needs, body-worn cameras do provide the unbiased, independent account of police/community interactions, as expected….” Authors of the report are now recommending that all of Toronto’s 3,200 frontline officers be similarly equipped with body cameras.
