Yes, and they shouldn't be allowed to reduce or edit the video recorded by the body camera.

Yes!!! And if anyone fails to do what a man of the law says, like "stop, hands up, etc.", then the policeman has the lawful right to arrest you. If you try to shoot him, he can defend himself and shoot you. If you shoot a policeman, you should be arrested and the punishment should be you life's punishment, no exceptions, no parole.

Yes. They should also be required to have frequent mental health checks evaluations. They should also be trained on how to deal with violent and non-violent situations - using their weapons as a resort.

YES and after every incident it should be released to the people (us) and the head of their department

@9LR7W82American Solidarity from Missouri answered…2yrs

Yes but no at the same time because sometimes officers lie about a situation that occurred so a camera can show if they're lying or not but they shouldn't also because some people feel threatened.

Yes, all police and the camera must always be on (unless you are doing something personal - e.g. bathroom). this will protect both sides

@9LN92JCWorking Family from Ohio answered…2yrs

Yes, and microphones that record the audio not just video and it should be illegal for them to turn them off

Yes, and there's no reason for them to be turned off, so mandate that they remain on.

Yes, and they should be ones with at least 60 FPS so it is easy to see what's happening. and the footage should be public unless if it infringes on peoples rights or puts lives in danger

Yes and no because they should be able to chose if they wear one or not but it is also nice to have on when you are doing something and need to go back look to see what you did wrong or what you could have done better and they might need it as evidence to what actually happen to make sure no one is lying
