Police Scotland are carrying out an online consultation asking the public for their views on the use of Body Worn Video by police officers when interacting with the public.
The reasons for using Body Worn Video by police to record interactions with the public include:
- improve the quality of interactions with the public;
- reduce and resolve complaints;
- increase officer safety;
- reduce delays to justice; and
- lead to greater public transparency.
It is important to us that we engage and involve individuals, communities, and our partners to gain their confidence in how we use technology and continue to police by consent.
This survey provides the opportunity for you to be part of an ongoing conversation to help shape the deployment of Body Worn Video in Scottish policing. This starts with the use of Body Worn Video by our Armed Response Officers.
The survey should take no longer than 15 minutes to complete.
