Policed The Beat: Body Worn Cameras

Vicky is joined, in this episode of The Beat by Sharda Murria of Birmingham City University, to talk about Body Worn Cameras. With legislation in train for using Body Worn Cameras in Ireland, Sharda talks to us about what emerging research tells us about the consequences and benefits of them.

Then she tells us about systems in England and Wales which allow members of the public to sit on panels where they review footage of stop and searches and provide feedback to the police. It’s a fascinating discussion that will really make you think about how these are not just a tool for accountability, but also transparency and learning. You can read more about Sharda’s work HERE
