BWCs and Canadian Policing: What we know and what we need to know
Speaker: Alana Saulnier - Lakehead University
Lakehead University’s Alana Saulnier provides a brief history of police use of body-worn cameras (BWCs) in Canada before discussing research that explores how BWC use affects outcomes like public perceptions of police, officer workload and trial resolutions. She suggests important next steps for BWC research in Canada and introduces a BWC policy template as a resource for police services considering BWCs.
