Brown Family Calls for Body Cameras on Officers

After a grand jury decided not to indict Darren Wilson, the police officer who fatally shot Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, questions about body cameras have been raised.

Some police departments, like Santa Maria Police, are looking into the idea of body cameras on their police officers.

“You think the decision is just, should we wear them?” says Commander Phil Hansen of the Santa Maria Police Department.

“There are privacy concerns that come into play, you have to remember we are in people’s houses and businesses, and a lot of members of the public really don’t want to be recorded.”

The Commander also added that a lot of details must be considered before the department begins to move in the direction of body cameras on their officers.
