If a police agency has the economic means to implement body-worn cameras (BWC) to their officers it would be taking the next step to modernize the criminal justice system. A body-worn camera serves as a neutral observer that will expose much needed information if needed from a crime scene. Body-worn cameras are tools used to improve the way we live in society. Award winning research by Chief Tony Ferrar (2013) from Rialto Police Department in California revealed that after the implementation of body-worn cameras citizens complaints against the police decreased 88% and use of force incidents decreased 60%. The numbers show that the incorporation of body-worn cameras not only promoted healthier police practices but it also promoted the legitimacy of the police in the eyes of the citizens living in this particular area. The public's perceptions of the legitimacy of the police could be one of the few driving forces to prevent crime before it occurs so if the implementation of body-worn cameras promotes this, I would consider it a worthy investment for any police department in the nation.
