San Diego Police deals with Body Camera issues

Screen Shot 2015-10-22 at 6.10.08 AM.pngI was reading an article about a shooting in the gaslamp. It will be intereting to see how it turns out.  One issue is that the officers did not turn on their body worn cameras (BWCs). As an individual, I can understand that you may forget protocol when you are in a situation like that.  However, the police should be professionals.  We expect them to absolutely follow to the point all protocols. The Body worn cameras should be on with any citizen contact.  This situation is EXACTLY the reason why the need for cameras is key.  The officers will likely not face any discipline for not turning on the cameras.  However, in tense situations we pay and expect law enforcement to be professional and follow protocol.  Not having the body worn on  camera in this situation will not be a major issue.  However, if officers do not turn it on and the situation is a little different it could means millions of dollars in taxpayers money to pay legal fees as well as a hindered prosecution against a person.

San Diego Police SDPD needs community oversight

There should be more community oversight.  The citizens review board needs more teeth to be effective.  The police will review but usually do all they can to protect the officer.  The City Attorneys office may review for prosecution purposes but also will have a thought in the back of their head about lawsuits against the city.  Can they be impartial?

An investigation is an investigation.  The officer makes observations and sometimes takes action.  If there is an incident or arrest there is a report written usually within 24 hours.  This ensures the officer is placing the facts in his memory while fresh.

San Diego Police training now pushes community policing

This is a good thing for San Diego Police.  SDPD hires many people who have not lived in San Diego before or have had exposure to different cultures.  It is healthy to have people learn about different culture because history has shown that too often different equals suspicious to many.

So whats the big deal with a picture?  The officer contacts a person and asks them to hold still.  In the meantime, the person has to wait while the officer is processing the information.  The person must remain level.  If they look nervous they must have done something wrong.  If the poerson is agitated it may raise the level of fear in the officer who would react.
