New Haven police department to start body camera use
Lab @ DC Director David Yokum’s group randomly selected officers to wear body cams for the study

His group worked with local police officials to make sure that cameras were handed out in a way that let the researchers carefully compare two groups: officers who were randomly assigned to get cameras, and those who were not.
Police use of body cameras might not have any effect on police behavior or citizen complaints, according to a new study.
Still, it might be hard to generalize the data from D.C. out to other police departments. "I think a lot of people were suggesting that the body-worn cameras would change behavior", Chief of Police Peter Newshamtold NPR.
The New Haven Board of Police Commissioners approved body camera use in a unanimous vote Tuesday.
Meanwhile, almost every major police force in the country was in the process of implementing a body camera program, or had already done so, as severalsmaller studies showed positive results.
That's the conclusion of a study performed as Washington, D.C., rolled out its huge camera program. And more people filed complaints against officers wearing cameras than without.
"I think our compliance rate's good".
David Yokum, director of the D.C. government research arm that conducted the study, said that "additional research that focuses on how camera footage is used in an evidentiary capacity-such as in court, officer training, and personnel matters-may show that a greater value of this tool exceeds traditional ideas". It's a matter of training and getting used to the technology, the office said.
The big question about cameras now is, White says, "is it worth the cost?" "As a result, the study's authors concluded that police agencies, ". should not expect dramatic reductions in documented uses of force or complaints, or other large-scale shifts in police behavior, exclusively from the deployment of this technology". That might help explain why there was such little difference between police who wore body cams and those who didn't.
The company continued to delay the release date, so Chief Kral decided he couldn't wait any longer to have all officers equipped with body cameras. "There's also discipline that takes place when an officer does not engage the camera the way they're supposed to", he said. Relatives argued police shot an unarmed man; the body camera video showed the man with "a rather large butcher's knife", Newsham said. "As we conclude this comprehensive study, we will recommit ourselves to always evaluating what works -and what does not- to better serve our residents and creating a safer, stronger DC".
