Islamabad police has started wearing body cams


 To ensure transparency and promote friendly policing in the federal capital, the Islamabad Police on Thursday formally started using small cameras which are attached to the uniforms of its officers.

The cameras were pinned to the chests of officers in a briefing at the Interior Ministry on Thursday with Interior Minister Ijaz Shah and Inspector General of Islamabad Police (IGP) Aamir Zulfiqar present.

What benefits do the body cams have for the police officers?

The adoption and deployment of body worn cameras provides law enforcement agencies with a number of key opportunities and potential benefits that were previously unobtainable. Headline benefits include: increased public confidence in local and national policing, a reduction in the number of complaints and allegations made against police officers and reduced criminal justice costs due to an increase in early guilty pleas among other benefits.
