All those involved in foot and vehicle patrol at Staffordshire Police will have access to 530 body worn cameras, which the force hopes will 'improve police integrity, accelerate cases through court, assist with rapid evidence gathering and offer greater protection for officers'.   Will the MPS look into piloting this for all patrol officers in one borough?

Let us do it.  I am totally in favour of it.  I can think of lots of occasions, notably recent ones, where the use of body-worn cameras would obviate any future confusion about what might or might not have taken place between individuals and the police and I think it is a thoroughly good idea.
