  • Support for Body Cameras Up, Police Expected to Benefit Most

    More Americans favor requiring police officers to wear body cameras while on duty but still tend to believe they will protect the cops more than those they deal with.

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 70% of American Adults think police officers should be required to wear body cameras while on duty, a move that a number of jurisdictions nationwide are now making. This is up from 52% three years ago. Just 17% don’t think cops should be required to wear the cameras. Thirteen percent (13%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
