Seattle PD To Expand Body Camera Program

"The Seattle City Council voted Monday to expand the Seattle Police Department's body-worn camera program agency-wide . . . .

A City Council report indicated that a survey performed by a police monitoring team overseeing SPD's compliance with the federal Department of Justice Consent Decree revealed 89 percent of the public favored body cams in Seattle in 2015 and 92 percent supported them in 2016 . . . .

SPD reported that between 87 and 98 percent of people whose conversations were recorded on body cameras felt comfortable being filmed and did not change their behavior because of the cameras."
