Police body-worn cameras (BWCs) have primarily been discussed from the perspective of police. As the primary users of the technology, this makes sense. But the implementation of a BWC program has ripple effects on other stakeholders, especially downstream criminal justice actors. An increasing amount of attention has been paid to prosecutors, but the defense has been virtually ignored, especially public defenders. In this webinar, we will discuss the benefits and challenges of police BWCs faced by public defenders.





The American Society of EvidenceBased Policing is a non-profit organization started by working police officers designed to drive the national conversation towards ensuring that the least harmful, most effective, fairest, and safest strategies are employed to prevent crime, reduce harm, and improve community wellness.
