How do Body-Worn Cameras Impact Latino Communities?

Over the past two years, mounting public anger following episodes of police brutality has led to the introduction of Body-Worn Cameras (BWCs) into community policing efforts across the country. New technologies such as BWCs are rapidly changing the experience of being monitored in highly policed minority communities, yet little is known about their impact at the community level, particularly in Latino communities.

Next Tuesday, Dec. 8, we’re hosting a webinar about the impact of BWCs on community policing. Our presenters will provide an overview of how BWC programs are being implemented around the country. Also to be examined are best practices and policies for their use, as well as the programs impact on civil rights and relationships between the police and the communities they protect.
