Body Cameras / On-Officer Camera Systems

COURSE SUMMARY

Cell phone videos, social networking and the relentless 24-7 news cycle have CHANGED THE GAME forever for law enforcement. This course provides excellent insight into the Civil liability, Privacy and Potential runaway cost investment such technology will bring…not if.

To protect and serve is both an honor and a burden.

National data has identified that officers, cities and agencies nationally annually have settled liability cases costing up to a whopping $2Billion+ in liability insurance costs/settlements. A little training up front might mitigate such extreme liability costs for a miniscule fraction for an agency’s yearly training investment.

It should be noted that one-third of these lawsuits result in an award for the plaintiff. Law Enforcement now operates in a world in which anyone with a cell phone camera can record video footage of a police encounter.

To assist in countering faulty perceptions of police actions and also possibly assisting with an added trail of validation of the responding officer(s) report also videotaped on citizen’s cell phone, Body-Worn cameras help police department’s officers ensure that events are also captured from an officer’s perspective.

Law Enforcement, as historically practiced, is changing and MUST CHANGE AND ADAPT to deal with both new social norms, and “change” is how some individual citizens develop a positive (or negative) perceptions of police.

Each online course is developed from an 8-hour classroom-based curriculum. The average length of our online courses is 90 to 120 minutes.
