19402. Police Body Cameras: Trends and Outlook. This paper draws on recent research and market data to provide an analysis and overview of current trends, implications, and outlook for the implementation of body cameras in police agencies. While the primary focus of this analysis is on US-based police agencies, the analysis has implications for the use of body cameras and other video technologies in public law enforcement agencies around the world. The paper traces the factors behind the explosive growth in the use of police body cameras, including high-profile police shootings and associated protests, calls for increased police accountability and transparency, the availability of funding to purchase cameras, and research supporting body camera effectiveness. The analysis provides an overview of current and ongoing research on body cameras, including the well-known “Rialto Study”, the first random controlled trial of police body camera implementation, as well as research examining police officer perceptions of body cameras. The paper discusses current use and implementation patterns and the major body camera competitors. Major legal, ethical/privacy, physical, practical, and cost limitations and concerns related to body cameras are also discussed. APA Style. 14 pages, 85 footnotes, 43 bibliographic sources, 4,090 words. KEYWORDS: body cameras, body-worn camera, police video technology, police shootings, police-community relations, racial discrimination, African Americans, Michael Brown, Freddie Gray, Walter Scott, Tamir Rice, Black lives matter, police accountability, police transparency.   $98
